Like Jo, I like Glass artist best but because of all the confusion I sometimes say I do lampwork and then usually explain. I also sometimes say I'm a Glass Bead Artist or a Glass Worker. I figure I'll have to explain anyway. I believe the term lampwork comes from way back when they DID work over a lamp flame. Correct me if I'm wrong here.
