Happy Friday! This week flew by for me--maybe because of the Monday holiday? Anyway, it's time for Candid Carrie's Friday Foto Fiesta!! Please go over and join in the phun!!
Since I showed pics of some of my painting last week I thought I'd show some of my glass this week. I'm a glassblower (though I've slacked off and haven't done it in a few months) and these are pics of some of my paperweights--but paperweights are solid worked and not blown.
I like to make paperweights when I'm in the hot shop (that's glass talk!) by myself. If my partner is there, then we blow--but it's hard to do alone.
I'm probably going to get some freaks visiting my blog from Google after all this blowing talk! Hi freaks! Sorry--just talking about glassblowing--you'd better go now.
So anyway, I make a lot of paperweights because they're easy and I can experiment a lot with color, etc. A lot of these have glass beads (that I also made) inside of them. And a lot of the beads are of eyeballs because I have a thing for eyeballs. Oh, the iridescent-looking stuff is called dichroic glass. I love it and I use it a lot!
Thanks for looking!
