Lampwork beads are derived from the process of melting preformed canes at a "lamp." Nowadays, a torch.
In contradistinction, in the making of furnace-wound beads, the worker removes a small quantity of hot melted glass from a crucible, and attenuates it into a trail—and thereupon makes a wound bead. So there is "winding," but not "heating" as is required in lampworking. The glass is already hot and liquid.
