Background: Originally from Lowell, MA, and currently hailing from Northern Virginia, Sarah Wicks is the flameworking glass artist and sculptor behind Wicked Lampworking. Sarah first starting working with glass over a decade ago at the Workhouse Art Center in Lorton, VA, where she now teaches a variety of hot glass classes and is an emerging studio artist. Sarah has taken flameworking classes from some of the best professional glass artists in the business, including: Paul Standard, Luccio Bubbaco, Shane Fero, Wesley Fleming, Robert Mickelsen, Chris Ahalt, Cedric Ginart, Karina Guevin, and Astrid Riedel.

Artistic Philosophy: Since the first time she saw live glassblowing as a child, Sarah fell in love with hot glass. As an adult, she began working with glass to craft joyful objects; often drawing inspiration from nature, travel, color combinations, and the many museums around DC. She uses her passion for glass to create whimsical and beautiful objects using a torch and to teach others how to explore their creativity through glass. Sarah uses a torch that mixes oxygen and propane to create a flame hot enough to melt glass. This technique of manipulating glass is an ancient art form known as lampworking or flameworking.
