Recently I was able to take a glass blowing class at a local glass shop called Circle 6 Studios. I used my class time to create a blown pumpkin. It came out so lovely and sweet I am excited to display if for the fall season.
This is a shot of me working with the instructor, sticking the glass on the end of the rod into the glory hole.
And this is me seated and the bench using the large tweezer like tool to shape the pumpkin before it’s blown into the bulb like shape.
Glass blowing is an amazing experience. I cant wait to do it again!
March is National Craft Month. March is also the month of my birthday — Perfect! What will you make this month in honor of this crafty celebration?
It’s black Friday and if you are running off to the mall I’d like to send out a reminder to also save some of your hard earned cash to spend on hard working local makers.
