We went to a demo at Blue Moon Glassworks in Austin with Bronwen Heilman Saturday night. Bronwen does painting with enamels on glass then encorporates it into a bead or marble. She makes marble making look easy. You should see the marble I bought - it is beautiful. She is lovely in her Halloween tutu - and she didn't even set it on fire!

Stephen Bishop

Kate and I took a glassblowing class from Stephen Bishop in Salado this week. We each made two paperweights and now we have the glassblowing bug. Stephen was teaching at Coyote Glass in Salado as part of Salado's Founder's Day celebration. In this picture, Stephen is making a fish. If you ever get a chance, take a class from Stephen - he is a great teacher.

Yet more hearts - somebody stop me!

Tuesday, October 13, 2009

I made these hearts on the first weekend in October. I'm having so much fun making hearts - thanks Lisa, for showing me how to make them. The deep purple one on the right is such a pretty color. I'll post more as soon as I get pictures. If you get a chance, take a class with Lisa at Blue Moon Glassworks in Austin. She's the best!
