Taking a Class

Saturday I am taking a class at Franz Art Glass studio on working with "Silvered" glass.I'm so excited! I just found out the famous Lampwork artist Corina Tettinger is going to be taking the same class!!!I can't wait to meet her.If you're not familiar with her work, she has written several books,one of which is considered the Lampworker's "bible" called Passing the Flame.Here's a link to her website:
I've been making lots of new eye candy! Here's a few photos for you to enjoy.
