Today I went to the toy stores, looking for goodies for my niece...

I had to pass a glassblowing studio.  So, of course I stopped and spent an hour there, watching and chatting.

I'm apprenticing with a glassblower.  But he closes the studio from january to the beginning of march.  i miss it.

glass blowing is one of those things that i love.  that i really feel passion for.  i haven't felt that way since rock climbing (which i had to give up).  anyway....

i haven't been doing it for very long, and i'm not really good at it, but i think i have a knack for it. 

here are a few pics, i'll try to do them in order made (roughly)



















I have two more pieces that i haven't taken pics of and my best two pieces are still at the studio, so i won't see them until the end of the month.

i am having a "i miss the studio" day...

thanks for viewing...

i had always wanted to learn as well... but never thought it would be a possibility... i was in the right place at the right time... Smiley  DH went to check out a new friend's studio with the possibility of him learning and brought me with.  it was WAY to hot for him, but for the first time, i felt warm enough!  lol 

i know that some colleges have glass blowing classes... you might look into it there.

It's the hardest, most frusterating, amazing, thing I've ever done.
