So, I was spinning out a plate, and the punty (the steel rod the glass is on) caught on my pinky.  it disrupted the spin and the glass folded on itself...







I love glass.  Smiley

thats really pretty, even if it is screwed up Wink I think you could make a really awesome sculpture out of it, or a wall hangning or something.

In this forum, that's a hell of a compelling thread title.

Agree with vanillaxlight! You could put it on a wire and make it something to hang, and when the wind blows it will twirl. Would be pretty in the sunlight.  Smiley

Oh yeah... It just was sweaty and sticky and stopped the punty just enough to let the hot glass fold...

I'm sure I'm not alone in that when I saw the thread title, I had visions of emergency rooms and burned flesh...

Thank goodness it was just a pretty project accident!

lol... I know!  Smiley

I really have not had a burn from glass.  You are about 5 feet away from it. 

I've burned myself on the jacks, and grabbed a pipe to high up, but it's not as dangerous as I imagined it would be.

Heck, my (limited) experience with lampworking glass seems like that is way more dangerous!
