Saturday was our Valentine paperweight class. It was a lot of fun with all new participants- including two young boys, Andrew and Baruuck, with their father, Paul. We made traditional round paperweights, and heart-shaped ones. Everyone had a blast!

John Marks even brought a few bits too. It was fun and energetic! Goblets are technically challenging, and have endless potential sculpturally. I’ll try to… Read More Blowing Glass Again

Caleb has been working with me… Read More My Newest Tall Sculpture!
