Something else new that is not quite finished. I made some of these leaves a long time ago and then a few more recently for practice. It is amazing how my skills are not what they used to be after spending time away from the torch for so long. I don't agree with the people that say it is like riding a bicycle. For me, I have to get that muscle memory back and it takes a few tries before I feel like my skills are up to par. I am tenacious so if it doesn't work quite the way I think it should, I will keep trying until I am satisfied with the turnout. I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I can relax now that all the dishes are done.
I first began making glass beads in 2004 and have been consumed ever since. Experimenting with different techniques, glass colors and metals is a never ending pleasure. I love opening the kiln to see what new suprises are inside. I am truly blessed to be able to do what gives me so much joy.
