Glass blowing

Similarly to most crafters, I am always searching for new ways to craft.  One that I've always wanted to try is glass blowing.  Last month, I finally got that opportunity (thanks to McFadden Art Glass and LivingSocial).  Four friends and I drove over an hour to have an introductory glass blowing lesson at Tim McFadden's studio.  It was definitely worth it!  I've even been searching for places to take a more in-depth course closer to home.

Adding color to the hot clear glass.
Heating my bowl in the stove.

My finished bowl! The colors aren't quite as vibrant as I was hoping, but I absolutely love the shape.

The drinking glass my boyfriend made.  It's now the only glass he uses.
