|Test paddles cooling on worktable|
Tuesday, August 31, 2010
I pulled some Vetrofond oddlots out of my glass rack on a whim today. They've been patiently waiting for their turn at the torch for a while now. These rods changed pretty dramatically once they were heated up and pressed into paddles shapes. Testing new glass seems to always fall to the bottom of the to do list. Just one many things on the back burner in the studio. Tomorrow I will make a few beads in a couple of styles for each color. I'm looking forward to seeing what else this glass has to show me.
