more beads

still haven't had a chance to
properly photograph them
so these are scans

two sides of one bead -
this one uses silver leaf,
silver wire,
transparent and opaque glass
the close up scan makes it seem flat
which it isn't.

a set made with opaque ivory
and transparent teal
and etched with acid after
being annealed.

a bunch

back from snow farm

here's one of the beads i made.
technnically it's very flawed.
i love it though.

most glass beads don't scan well.
have to figure out how to
photograph them.

unless you're a steel worker or a mine worker
don't talk to me about hot
until you've worked in a small, enclosed,
unairconditioned space
with six torches blowing 1400 degrees
in humid 90 degree heat.

the dew in the mornings was delightful.

having not melted glass in five years
my first day's work was hideously disappointing.
i wondered why i'd come.

i got happier each day as my glass instinct
got stronger.

the shapes reminded me
of laundry
tossed in the dryer or
slapping the wind

like a moth... the flame

i used to melt glass
to make beads
and i miss the flame...

the luna moth
(the only one
i've ever seen)
was at snow farm
where i learned to melt glass.

if i'm lucky i'll be going back
next week...
