I spent some much needed time at the torch tonight and it felt so great. I can't wait until the morning to see the end results from the kiln. I did a half dozen beads in simple clear glass, some with texture and frit, while others were just plain clear glass.
Warm weather firings bring the sounds of peepers into my music while I work, as well as a few bird sized moths that can't resist the light of the torch. Open flames, swatting and outrageously large bugs....quite the combination:)
