On Channel 2 morning news I
heard about glass blowing in the Taft part of Lincoln City.
Elaine and I went and I signed up to make a glass float. I
choose the colors and, put on gloves and glasses and blew away.
My teacher was Kelly Howard and
you can see her work and gallery at
Setting out the colors
Firing up the blass blob in the "Glory Hole"
Mashing in the color granules
Twisting the glass into swirls
The end result, the next day. The glass ball stays in the kiln
for 10 hours.
