Masterclass with Michael Barley


It was a real pleasure to meet Michael Barley at the Volkmann's studio in Hamburg. I was interested to see how he works with regular Effetre glass and achieves effects that one would normally associate with the use of silver glass.

One of Michael's signature beads

I love the soft transitions between the subtle colours. The slightly irregular oval is one of my favourite shapes.

Swirls

A lovely example of Michael's swirl beads with an abundance of colour. I like the depth.

Michael's caterpillar bead. The striations are created by using striped cane.

Michael Barley explaining

A truely inspiring workshop. The weekend was far too short.
