"I have noticed, even among craftsmen a leaning toward the quick trick rather than methodical mastery, as well as a general downfall of “Made in America”. We have become an information society rather than a farming and manufacturing society. This ability to form something in your mind and then create it were the essential steps to founding our country. A time when the village craftsmen were held in high esteem. Nowadays it is rare to find someone dedicated to the concept of making something as good as they possibly can. The focus of my work is in response to this. I believe in pushing the limits of my chosen medium, fuming gold and silver in borosilicate glass. This is the strength of my work." - James Yaun

We couldn’t have said it any better! Buy American Made!

All of James’ orbs are created with a process known as fuming. He creates colors within objects by using precious metals such as 24 karat gold and silver. It is a labor and time consuming process similar to steam rising out of boiling water and condensing on a relatively cooler plate held above. The ‘water’ is 24k gold or silver which ‘condenses’ on the art piece and is covered in multiple layers of clear Borosilicate glass to produce an incredible finished piece.
