Future Glassblower???


So, I've been interested in working with glass for years now, but haven't had the guts to get into it. When David expressed an interest in glass work a few years ago, I immediately went and got him a complete starter kit for his birthday. he still hasn't touched it.

David took me to his friend’s glass blowing studio this past Sunday. I think he was interested in learning. We walked in and he instantly broke into a sweat. I was instantly, finally, warm enough! Watching Scott work was amazing. i loved it! i asked him about a thousand questions and he patiently answered them all. He then suggested he would take on an apprentice! I can't wait! I’m heading over there tonight for my first evening! woo hoo!!!!!

    Wonderful!!! I always thought I would enjoy glass blowing, too. But at 63 am maybe a little old to take it up. Not to mention that I don't have access to classes, etc. - minor detail. And it generally takes two people to work the glass. I wish you lots and lots of luck with this. I love watching something so hard and brittle as glass become a liquid, flowing thing of beauty. I want to see even your very first efforts.
