This is the first time I have posted in show and tell. It is also the first time I have done a combined piece where I made one part, ramped it, made the second part and combined them.

Had an amazing time last night here in San Antonio . Flameworks of Austin teamed with Lazy Daze counter culture and had a live demo with legend Bob Snodgrass and Steve Sizelove. Flameworks crew was torching it up among other talented artist from Texas. Thanks Flameworks for a great time!

Yes it is. I have made a couple of eye balls with that cane now. Thank you for the lesson. The grandsons love them. One of my nephews wants one from Lord of the Rings called the Eye of Sauron. I have to pick up some yellow and oranges to do it. Look forward to the challenge.

That cane is amazing. I love the idea, too. Next time my husband needs a cane I'll have to try to make one for him. Can I ask where you got the hardware?

It's my first week back after a long summer. Today's my oldest daughter's birthday and since she has a pet bearded dragon, I thought I'd attempt a beardie head for her. The clear was tough to photograph.

well this is I believe my second post.
I've enjoyed looking at others work.

I played with Glass for the first time in 5 to 6 years this month, and as always I had a blast. Unfortunately the detail really does not show well in these pics. I can try for better if anyone really wishes to see the detail.
