Salusa Glass

Salusa Glass Tree of Life Menorah

Bandhu Dunham

 Bandhu came to glass through his childhood interest in chemistry. After bending some glass tubes in his basement chemistry lab, he read some books and taught himself glassblowing starting at age 15. Many years later he has a successful studio with young apprentices in training as well as a career teaching workshops at various at venues around the world. His more elaborate sculptural works are in museum collections in the US and abroad.

Glass rods and tubes are shaped in a gas-oxygen flame. Designs range from simpler gift items designed by Bandhu and crafted by his apprentices to amazing kinetic contraptions. In addition to teaching, Bandhu has written the standard how-to manuals on this type of glass work.
