Profile Harlan Simon is both Oakland glass artisan/jewelry designer and teacher. Over nearly two decades, Harlan's entertaining and informative instructional style has introduced many hundreds to the ancient art and magic of flamework glass bead making. In 1997 he helped found the Northern California chapter of the International Society of Glass Beadmakers, the organization which has presided over the rebirth of flamework glass bead making in North America. Harlan first learned beadmaking right here at Studio One, and Studio One is home to the oldest public flamework program in Northern California. He exhibits his work at local and regional California arts and crafts shows.
