I want to get back to glass..... and!
When I made this piece I thought about how small my pile of fused glass is, and how I say every winter I'm gonna get back to that!! I had so much fun making all the cabs that I'm almost out of now!!
So I am making this a resolution.. who says you have to wait til new years right?
Course we are almost up to Christmas and I hurt my hand so right now I can't really make stuff ( seriously don't ask.. I just want to know how I managed to hurt myself and all the strange ways that I do) So it will probably be in January before I can get to making glass again.
But it's on my list!! I have a small list of stuff I want to explore on this winter break, and once I get past the holiday season I'm gonna do it.
So expect glass in the future........ again! I also want to get back to etching, which I 've not done in a year at least. And I got a new torch this Summer. It's smaller, lighter weight and not as smelly, so I want to play with it. I'm hoping less smoke/stink and it won't effect my asthma as much. Not sure I'll get back to silversmithing or anything, I just want the torch as an option again when it's warranted - and you can do such cool patina effects with a proper torch!
I have a couple of other things I want to play with, but 3 goals is probably a good start.
