Welcome to the home of Andrew Jackson Pollack Designs. Andrew is known for his unique glass creations made on a torch. He uses a process whereby he manipulates hot glass rods or tubing, to sculpt or blow into solid or hollow forms, respectively. This is a technique known as Flameworking or Lampworking, and it is one of the oldest glass working techniques. Andrew also uses other hot and cold glass working techniques in the creation of his art.
To view Andrew’s work, please go to the galleries page and choose a category to browse. You will find everything from Andrew’s jewelry to sculpture to functional glass like goblets, and even action shots of Andrew working. More images will be added often, so check back soon.
Andrew’s work is available at galleries across the U.S., including the Museum of Art and Design Shop, The Contemporary Jewish Museum, The Nat’l Museum of American Jewish History, and others. Each piece is a signed, one of a kind, unique work of art.

Classes have resumed after a long, hot summer! Classes in glass bead-making are starting on Thursday evenings.
Classes cover beadmaking, marbles, sculpting with glass and glassblowing.
Beginner class description: These classes will cover studio safety and setup, torches and tools, supplies and suppliers. Students will learn about shaping, surface decoration techniques and color reactions. The student will be introduced to basic flame working skills, including making stringers, stringer control, pulling cane, dots and dot distortion techniques, flowers, complex shaping and sculptural beads. Students should leave the class in possession of a fundamental knowledge of glass bead making, a collection of their own beads and enough technical information to setup their own studio or rent the lampworking studio here at YAYA Creative Glass.
