more silver glass hollows

Fresh out of the kiln, more hollow blown silver glass beads.  Some of these are very large, approx. 50 mm, almost didn't fit in my kiln door.

more buttons

I have been working out a way to use a variety of twisties and color combos that will work on a button.  Here are a few that I liked a lot.

Silver glass blown hollow

Here are a few new blown hollows. One is psyche and clear and the other one is kalypso and clear. They are really big but hard to tell in the picture.

Black & White buttons

These are my new all time favorite buttons. I couldn't stop making them and was surprised at all the combinations I could come up with. I just made some minature ones today and will be anxious to see them in the morning.

Dan Grumbling marble class

Thanks to Dan Grumbling for his wonderful class on glass marbles. He is very talented and patient teacher. Thanks also to the patience of the students who put up with a few glitches...sorry. Hope you all learned some new techniques. All your marbles turned out great.

Teaching at Flametree in Atlanta

I had such a wonderful time teaching buttons and hollows at Flametree in Atlanta. Maureen and Lance are the best and they have a great studio. It is always nice to spend time with glass lovers. If you are ever in the area I would highly recommend taking a class.
