How can it not inspire us. I made disc bead after disc bead of rich reds, oranges and greens. I think my favorite is a glass called "Tomato Soup"...so fun! I simply wrap molten glass gently onto itself while spinning the mandrel and "babysitting" the glass in the flame. It is a pretty easy technique. I am thinking they will find a fun home on a necklace or a pair of earrings very soon. They need a dusting and a bubble bath and a scrub to get the release out of the core but then they will be on their way.
The temps cool tomorrow.....but so it goes. I will stack my wood and start up a nice fire in the fire place and embrace all the amazing things that are cool and crisp around the corner.
