Yes, If it is hollow glass then it has probably been blown into. One of my handles will always be hollow when doing blown glass. This allows me to blow into the hollow glass while it's hot, causing the glass to expand like a baloon. Sculpted glass on the other hand, is usually solid and is not blown into at all.
There are many answers to that becuase, like any art, your own imagination is the only limitiation. I buy pre-made colored glass that comes in the form of rods, frits and powders. I can use the rods to "draw" or "stripe" on the outside of the clear glass. I can roll hot glass in frits and powders that will then stick to the glass. By not melting these in all the way I can achieve different textures. I can even pour frits and powders down into hollow glass to get color on the inside.
Yes. (within my abilities) I have done a lot of custom work over the years and I am up to the challenge. Whether you have an idea of your own, or you want something on my site but would like it a different color or design I can try to accomodate your imagination and preferences. If I can't do it, I may be able to refer you to a glass artist who can.

Yes, but only if it is lampworked glass. If you are unsure, the easiest thing to do is email a digital photo of the broken object. It helps to include something in the photo like a ruler or coin to reference size. Make sure to include your name and phone number. If you are unable to email a photo, call me toll free at
