Did I ever tell you I love glass? Any glass except windows I have to wash, that is.
This glass in the slide show comes from a number of sources: recycled bottles, fused Bullseye glass, scrap stained glass, and dichroic glass. Some is from bottles I smashed into shards and put in a rock tumbler to simulate beach glass. I have not made anything out of these babies yet; I am waiting for them to talk to me.
In the meantime, here are a few of my favorite glass and lampworking sites: Warm Glass, International Society of Glass Beadmakers, Paul Stankard Website, Wale Apparatus, Stephanie Sersich, Wet Canvas (lots more than glass on this site-you could spend days here) Bronwen Heilman, Kim Merriman and Sharon Peters.
