How to make a heart

Into the mold

Necking the glass

Working at the bench

Into the crucible

At the glory hole

Adding the colored frit

Back into the crucible

I've been pondering the 100th blog post, and what to do for a giveaway. Inspired by Valentine's day, I decided to make a hot glass heart or two, post the pictures here, and then give one away to you!

So, here is the process, and when they come out of the kiln tomorrow, I will post pics of the finished hearts, and explain the giveaway!

Happy Valentines to you!

  1. OOOOooh Midnight Sky is very pretty. I love your art work and your writing style. I live near Matt and Emma in England and when Emma heard I wanted to start a blog for my Enlish coursework she told me to have a look at yours. So if it's ok you are in my bibliography. You've been a huge help without even knowing it.
    Thanks again!
