Thank you, Ofillia, for organizing everything for us!

I'm sorry for the wonky picture, but this is the only one I have showing Lucio's horse on a bead.

Hi Kim, that's just a Carlisle burner. Straight gas.

OMG, Kim, my dear.... you were the epitomy of what one would wish everyone to accomplish on these trips to Murano.

You grew leaps and bounds in the five class days you were there, you relished in the out of studio distractions, and you had oodles of energy to get as much in as possible. You took independant direction and embrased it with all you . I was so happy you were in our mix. Brava, big hugs, my friend. Keep up the good work. I can't wait to see what you do with all that aventurina ribbon you scored. Why do I feel you will have some lovely sparkly twisties emerging from the studio soon, if not already.

Ofilia you ROCK!!! Youíre going to make me cry!!! I miss everyone so much!!!!! I canít wait to go back!!!!


Oh the goldstone bling is already the new Favorite toy in my studio. I had to share it so I am doing a giveaway of this stuff here on LE in the sale rack. Here is a link
http://lampworketc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=224147

lol oh ya and the photo lol




good luck you guys!!
Hay Wait!!! Before you hit the link has anyone who got the Calcedonite glass rods tried it at home yet I canít seem to get my torch hot enough to make it do anything. I have a mini cc and all I am getting is black or smoky tan. Maybe I am trying to get it too hot?


The ring on the far right is the one that was a bright blue in Italy. When I annealed it at home the calcedonite took on that cool green color. Maybe I should work cold and try to kiln strike it??? what do you guys think???






Thanks again

Hi Susan, Yes, Lucio and I are just finalizing dates for April of 2013! We can chat at Philly about it. April is a great time. This one will be a little later in April than this past trip was. This way hopefully the rainy weather will be "done" by then and we are stearing away from Easter season air fares. Little things like this help make it all better.

I'll be there for two weeks (just got that firmed up at work) and one week will be dedicated to visiting studios and shopping and scavaging in the glass graveyard. So this means there will be plenty of opportunity to drop money for some of the most spectactular buying trips (tools is always the favorite, but buying direct from artisan friends and factories, is just a-frickin'-awesome. The scavaging, be it for shells in Lido or glass factory discards help balance off the spending sprees . I'm excited!

Talking

I finally got the time to just practice I know being busy is a good thing but I just want to play. I canít remember who posted the faerie wingís and listed the tool used on LE, I canít find the post but I had one of the pliers in my tool box collecting dust and could not resist getting it out and making a faerie.
What do you think??

Hi Kim! Hey, those are just absolutely lovely! Maybe that mermaid is cold because she's swimming in the lagoon about now. Burrrr..... winters sure can be chilly there.

2014 and 2015 are still a bit far, but for sure I'll be going back in April of this year. I'll be getting a new thread going with the dates and details this week. I've been going through my photo archives, and have a lot of resizing to do to be able and post them here.

Would be great if you can join us! So far, we have five countries represented in our eclectic group. As always, I'll be there for an added week of exploring and of course.... more digging in the "glass cemetary".

Still have room for you too, DeAnne!

Ciao,

Ofilia

I can't go for the class, but am lucky, (soooo lucky) to be able to travel to Italy in the fall. It's my dream trip. We are definitely going to Murano. So... does anyone have advice for me about where to look for tools or glass? Is it possible to shop bit for that? I would love to make the time in Murano the best glass time possible.
Susan

Hi Susan, check out the Carlo Dona thread here in LE. You will see Roberto's shop address. He's open Monday through Fridays and sometimes early morning on Saturdays. He only takes CASH, so do not bring plastic. It will be well worth your time to visit him. Just be prepared to spend to your heart's content. Great opportunity being there!

If your starting a list put me on it for 2014 or 2015. I'd love so much to go this year but there is just no way, so I'm counting on future trips. ( I'll be saving my pennies)

Ekkie Thanks the wings are made with a pair or re-bar? pliers, they are heavy and mine do stick to the glass a little...I got them at a hardware store they have a criss cross on the inside in place of the lines that are in normal pliers,
someone on LE posted how she made wings on beads I think?? I can't remember the original poster.....

I will look for my notes... maybe I can find the original thread.......when I am awake...
