Episode 208(From the Vault): Bhandu Scott Dunham- From Mad Scientist to Master Lampworker
Previously aired from Episode 170, Bandhu and I sit down in the virtual studio and discuss many topics pertaining to glass and his career.  Find out what sparked his initial interest in glass and what continues to motivate  him to continue working with this amazing medium  for the last 42 years.


Born in Dayton, Ohio, in 1959, Bandhu Dunham began to teach himself lampwork/flamework technique in 1975, while still in high school. Now an internationally respected glass artist, author and teacher, his work is in the permanent collections of numerous museums in the US and abroad, including the Corning Museum of Glass, The Museum of Arts and Design, Museum für Glaskunst (Germany), Niijima Glass Art Center (Japan), and Osaka University of Arts.
Bandhu’s Contemporary Lampworking books are the authoritative, standard instructional texts in his field. He regularly teaches workshops at craft schools and private studios around the United States and internationally. In 2010 he was Visiting Foreign Instructor at Osaka University of Arts in Osaka, Japan. In 2012, Bandhu was a presenter and Masterclass leader at the International Festival of Glass in Stourbridge, England. In 2013 he was a presenter and teacher at the international Ausglass Conference in Australia, and First Place winner in the CHAMPS Glass Games in Las Vegas.
