How he got so good.
In his early years, he spent around 60 hours over the furnace in order to learn the right techniques that he used now in the off-hand glass blowing.
In this process, Lazer used to create particular glass shape using different layers of glass, using precious metals and glass powders melted or fused onto the surface of the glass to obtain transparent, iridescent, lustrous and opalescent pieces.
Influenced Italian glass master Lino Tagliapietra studies in New York, today, he is working in his studio in Northern California. He got expertise in the art of fusing and manipulating it with dichroic glass and 22k foil gold to create ornaments, paperweights, perfume bottles, vases, and platters.
