Yay I'm so glad you liked it all! I rewatched labyrinth while I made the teapot Smiley and the day of the dead Kermit pattern was actually released as promo for the movie as a kids coloring page! I just turned it into a pattern for a tote. Wish I'd had time to embroider it but I think it is cute as is!

joby I'm so jealous! I am considering upgrading from my SC2 to the Fusion-14.  But believe it or not, my room is only about 100 square feet and it is shared with my sewing machine and jewelers bench! Anyhow, I'm jealous!

it just doesnt sound like a very safe setup to me. when lampworking hot glass pops all over the place and dry old wood sounds like it would just go up in bushy flames. Also, the basement sounds like a very bad idea as well, considering that ventilation is very very important. You can get carbon monoxide poisoning while lampworking if you do not have VERY strong ventilation.

You can look up more safety information on the message boards at www.lampworketc.com

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. I'm struggling with similar problems. I want to lampwork, but I do not want to hurt myself or my neighbors... but I miss the torch!

these are crazy amazing. Is the chain boro? What kind of torch do you use?

to avoid the soot problem, I'd try working further out in your flame. You don't need to be right at the torch head. I have a problem with that myself (just took a week long intensive workshop on lampworking) but the closer in you are, the more likely you're going to discolor your glass either by soot or by boiling it...

the dimples, i think, just take practice. Mine are nowhere near perfect but yours look pretty good actually!

I fuse in a Paragon SC2 that runs on 110v household current. You can get them with a bead door. This kiln runs between $650-800 dollars. When I first bought mine, they were about $500 (this was only 2 years ago!) and a friend and I bought it together. Eventually I bought out her "share" of ownership when she moved away and got one of her own.

I love love love my SC2 - I am self taught, well, rather, book taught, and I am happy with the pieces I'm able to make. I bought my kiln from www.clayking.com.
