Glass class day 2

The first thing we checked were our beads from day one, fresh out of the kiln. Still on their mandrels.


The colored bits of glass, on the end of the mandrels, were how we kept track of our beads after they went into the kiln to anneal. Each one of us had an identifying color.

Holly’s and my beads from day one.

Holly and I also made some head pins. 

I would have loved one more day of class, but real life calls us back after we pick up our last batch of beads in the morning. Holly heads south, I head north. Bye bye Rockland.

  1. Beautiful! I took a beginning lampworking class once and loved it, but I don’t have a place for the torch setup. Plus, it would be just another money sucking hobby for me. I liked it a lot but I’m not all that good and it would take a lot of practice before I could actually sell anything.

      Thanks Lisa. It is definitely a challenging media to work with. I hope to get in some more practice before I decide if I will buy my own torch.


  2. I love the colors! Can’t wait to see what you create with the beads; better start saving my pennies as I predict a purchase in my future!

      Thanks Nancy. I carried the tennis ball off the island and while I was driving to Rockland. Didn’t have it in my pocket when I was working with the torch. My money is on the Cubicin. Fingers crossed.

      Thanks Anita. It really was a lot of fun. Luckily the glass studio is a 2 hour drive (after the boat ride) which makes it manageable to get there again before too long. I hope I do. I would like to keep working at it.
