Gravity is your friend. "Round" is a shape. (as "get in shape")

My mom & I always say to each other that we have "a need to bead"

Then my step-dad pipes in and says something like " you girls go bead off!" (geeze)

As a welder and torchworker, I usually go with "I like to melt stuff" (if you watched Friends, you might recognize that)

Oh lol! I take a piece to show my husband so he can give me a glazed eyed head shake of approval. ;c) What I usually say is "this is highy experimental"! He must wonder when something isn't an experiment.

I don't normally comment on posts just for the sake of LOLling them, but this one really deserves it.

Having been a glassblower for about 35 years and female, back in the days when "girls" didnt blow glass, I got a LOT of flak about it


some guy would ask what I did for a living, I would reply I blow glass.. I got one of 2 responses.. they would say thier name was GLASS, or ask me what else I blew...


my response to what else do you blow is.... anything honey as long as its 2300 degrees first...

I love to deliver the line and watch the cringe that usually follows

LOL Karen! reminds me of the bumper sticker that says "Ski Naked" and another bumper sticker "Never underestimate the power of a sick mind"

Sorry didn't mean to change the subject of the thread!

One does not "Master" glass, the best you can do is gently convince it to go where you want it to.

I give new meaning to "drop it like it's hot"

My 20yo heard me say "Ouch", asked what was wrong and this is what I told her. She nearly fell out of her chair laughing!

Added: Play with glass and you will bet cut and you will get burned.

Sorry to be crude but what about? Why yes I am a glass whore.
