You did GREAT Gelly. Those are so cute.And your right, they are a lot of fun.
I hope you have better luck than I did selling them. I didn't get one bid on the mine. I can never get anything sold on ebay. I think everybody just doesn't like me,lol. JK

Kristina, nice. You did really good. I like the color combo of the yellow and green one.
I've had quite a few crack along the mane by the mandrel. You just have to make sure to give him a real good heat bath on all the fagile spots (nose, mane, tail, neck, pretty much the whole body,lol) right before you put in the kiln.

Yes I know,lol. At the time I wrote this I had just made my very first seahorse. I put fins on the side where fish would have their fins. Ever since then I put little tiny fins at the back of the check or jaw. I also have thought long about not puting a long fin down the back but it just doesn't look right to me with out it. Like I said I make my seahorses how they look in "MY" little world,lol. They are better that way. IMO

Sadiesbeads we would love to see your sea serpent.

Thank you Mike. I have never heard of a fireworks torch. I can't wait to see what you do with your torch. Make sure you come back and let us see.

Jasmin, he is ADORABLE! Great job! I love that color blue.

I'm in complete awe! I'm still at the very beginning stage of learning how to play with fire and since my 'studio' is in the garage, I have to wait until it warms up as I work in soft glass. My favoriate of all the glass sculptures that I've seen are underwater items. I can't wait until I start to see my work improve.

Your tut is terrific. I'm saving it so when I get more experienced, I will try it. (I hope me copying it to my computer is ok. I'm just saving till I have better control of the glass.)

I have to say that Kim Hart is one of the most talented and generous women I have ever met. She is as genuine as the day is long...... She is top notch in my book! I am thrilled to say she is a friend of mine and I have had the pleasure of seeing her work in person. She is incredibly talented! Jill
