Another Glassblowing night last night...

Okay... I haven't posted in a while...

I went to Nashville, TN two weekends ago (Sept 22nd - 25th) to visit a couple of friends.  I had an awesome time!  We didn't do a whole lot, but it was nice to hang out with 'em!

I managed to get back in time Monday to go to my glass session.  One out of four balls I tried made it:

I have also been working on flameworking at home... making beads!  These are in order that I made them, left to right with the newest on the right:

And last night, at glassblowing, I made 2 balls that lived... almost all by myself... :)  

And I made my first bowl!  That was way fun!  After you get the ball on the end of the pipe, you then have to get a small bit of glass on the pontil, marver it out and then attach it to the end of the ball (where it's the roundest, in the middle).  Then you break the ball off of the pipe, so you have an open round-ish vessel.  You have to heat that up and open it up and shape it.  It was super hard but really fun!  I had a LOT of help!

Anyway... thanks for tuning in!
