Using traditional lampwork methods of heating and softing glass rods or tubing in the flame of a torch. Each bead is kiln annealed at temperatures over 1000 degrees, removing any residual stress remaining in the glass after it has been worked. The bead is then allowed to slowly cool to room temperature, giving the glass strength, luster, and durability.

We reside in Sweet Home, Oregon.

Our name is derived from a native species of trout from Central Oregon. This species is Julio's most favorite and brings back memories of his childhood.
