Melting Glass

I’m beginning to think there is a little pyromanic within me. I LOVE lampwork (or flamework as I am informed the Americans call it). Basically taking a rod of glass and melting it into a bead using your own hands. And a big torch, of course. So for the last couple of days I have been sitting at my torch melting and shaping beads, and it was only my 6th time doing it, so I am very proud to say I made something I am actually happy enough with to show the world! However, I cant show you yet because first I need to anneal them in Colin the Kiln on Monday, and then I need to photograph them. And photographing glass is hard. Wish me luck! Have a lovely weekend 🙂
