Default July boro show and tell, bring em on!

My muse has taken off to mexico and is having tequila's on a beach somewhere, so I took out my boro glass again ( and that is why I love boro so much, no matter how bad your day is, the glass almost always looks good)








have a great day,

Suzanne

Chris, those vessels are amazing, I love the one on the right, and what a cleaver idea to make your own rodwarmer out of glass!!

Suzanne - LOVE those beads, they just glow. Nice job.
Chris - those vessels are awesome. I especially love the one with the lizard...way cool.

I was fortunate to be able to take a class with John Kobuki last weekend. Here are a couple of the ones I made.....keep in mind that I don't DO marbles...shows what a good teacher he is!! If you ever get the opportunity to take a class with him, jump at it!! Now, don't go thinking that every one I did was ok....there are a couple that are "put away"

Here's a little bottle I was playing around with the other night. I meant for the marble to sit deeper into the face but I got impatient

he's got an outie!
Very cool!
I love the contrast of color between the green and the red orange. Beautiful!
Also, the idea of the embedded marble is cool!
