back and forth

My two lives. My late night/early mornings life of mad crafty energy, where my fingers itch to create and my mild mannered day life of teaching, biking, tennis and the love of my life!

Hot glass. Torching. Molten. Flame. Boro.

Still exploring mediums. And I'm not there yet. I need to take another step to find my expression. I can sell items, but it's not my 'art' yet, if that makes sense! So my next obsession is Boro glass. I'm taking a couple of classes and already dreaming of glass. And combining it with wire and stone.

And jumping head first. I guess that's just the way I roll!

....and a pic of my first marble! Boro is 'hard' glass, you use temperatures up to 1500+ degrees to work it. But it has a depth and magic and unpredictability that I'm drawn to.

Ooh, the inclusion of glass in your work would be amazing! I'm in a jewelry class right now, and we are writing research reports on jewelers we find interesting and unique. I chose to write about you and your wonderful work with wire and stone! Thanks so much for the inspiration and keep up the great work. :)
