|my work space and color choices|
Glass blowing beads this time. I loved it and am still trying to figure out how I can fit a proper workspace and torch in my NYC apartment. Torches... apartment - hmmmm - maybe not. I mean they rent studio space outside for this, but when the creative bug hits you at midnight what do you do?
Anyway, I had an awesome teacher, Amy Lemaire and co-teacher, Maria Aroche and it was so unbelievably easy to catch on. But alas, patience or the lack thereof was my enemy. It took at least 30 minutes to make a small bead nice and round, and 45 minutes to make it beautiful. I think I forgot I was a beginner (way to excited) and two of them did not make it.
