Bench Top Marvering Video.
This is my first time trying to shoot edit and upload a video.
Wasn't easy and it has it's issues but I still thought I would share it.
I use my bead masher at the very end.
I make both thee the Brass Bench Top Marver and Bead masher here in my Tennessee studio. If you are interested in acquiring either let me know.

Thanks for posting. I have a long skinny piece of marble laying around. Have to unbury it and try your method.

I love Trey's marver - the brass seems to "grab" the glass just right - not too much, not too little - and it's great for cooling down a bead before striking.

That's right Wendy. I used to teach this technique with graphite marvers but they were to slick and students had a more difficult time getting the bead to roll. The beads would slide across the surface creating a flat spot.
Brass is perfect. It offers the perfect friction and is purported to have magical qualities when working with some glasses like Raku.

And the tools that Trey sells are all quality. That certainly counts for a lot.

Watching him use the marver is interesting. Didn't think to use it that way. Thanks for sharing.

Ha! Seek and ye shall find. It’s been awhile, and I was trying to remember how to use mine. Thanks for the video.
