drawn to the flame



some lampwork beads
i made last month
at snow farm
in cynthia saari's class








two sides, one bead



i've made progress in shaping
but close up i see where i need work.
the ends. the idea is
that the ends should be perfect.
unlike most of my endeavors
that's not an unattainable goal.
i just need more practice.

  9. Ahh, metallics and frits, my favorite friends in lampworking!
    I think you have a similar aesthetic to me in many ways.
    Thanks for directing me.
    I think if you put in a search term in the upper left it will let me find more.
    xoxo Kim
