I think this may be my new addiction. While I do enjoy glassblowing that damn furnace is so freakin hot! If you've ever been in a glass shop you know what I mean. My skin literally breaks out if I stand near it too long. 2300 degrees will do that to you. I know that your body builds tolerance to the heat after a while but damn it's hot!

Maybe I'll get into it more after the furnace is built at the house and I can practice in the back yard whenever I feel like it. But, until then I'm hooked on flameworking. There's something about playing with a large flame and molten glass. It's mesmerizing, relaxing, yet energizing all at the same time. I can't wait to do it again.

Here is a sample of what I've made so far. I know they're not very exciting but I'm still a beginner. I'm allowed to suck for a while. This shit is a lot more difficult than you think!

Oh, and on a side note: WARNING: Christmas Party + open bar + owner who lets you refill your own beer from the tap = Not so good Monday morning.
On days like today it comes in handy to be able to work on the couch in my pajamas!
