About my artwork

My flamework glass sculptures and jewelry are made with Pyrex (borosolicate) glass rods. The pieces are sculpted in an oxygen/ propane flame, and trimmed with 22kt gold. All pieces are delicate, but durable, one-of-a-kind designs that are set in natural corals, shells, and stones that represent the local area.

Melanie Cech at the Imagine Museum trunk show in December, 2018

Dali Museum, Downtown St. Petersburg, FL

The Glass Nautilus, is part of my "Signature Series Nautilus Collection".  

Found in my Logo, the nautilus and spiral represents the growth, organization and patterns found in all nature and life. (Read more about the Nautilus here.) Dali was fascinated by the spiral and featured the design in his masterworks.  These pieces, when available, can be found in the Dali Museum gift shop in two different sizes and settings.  

Ask for them by name!
