 I’ve been a very busy girl making glass recently. I spent three days this week out in the freezing weather at Edgefield blowing glass, and I have much to show for it. I’m going to have almost entirely new stock for sale at Twelfth Night, and as soon as I get my photography stuff set up I’ll be posting some teaser pics. But for now, words will have to do. I’ve been busy making the following: four different colors of claw beakers, blue and white feathered and wrapped globular beakers, a red and yellow globular beaker, blue and green prunted beakers, a blue and white wrapped drinking horn, optic twist tumblers with colored lip wraps, beakers with blue and clear pinched trails decorating them, and strange medieval style goblets. In the next half week I plan on making mullers and linen smoothers, and perhaps some basic beakers out of recycled blue/green tinted window glass. Come to Twelfth Night prepared to buy some glassy goodness!!!

If you have some photos I'd love to see them. I'm particularly interested in some wine glasses they don't have to be goblets.

Someday we really need to blow glass together. I've been so busy with my Ph.D. I haven't been able to blow glass in months, but I want to blow glass with you before you end up at sea!

I'll only be at sea for 3 months, but yes, we should totally blow glass!

How much will you be charging for the linen smoothers?

Sounds awesome!!! Very sad to miss all the glass goodness as I'll be at my own 12th night in southern Sweden.

Hopefully the glass goodness just keeps on coming!

Oh you pooor pooooor girl, being at Twelfth Night in Sweden. :-P I feel for you, I really do! At some point you'll have to come do some glass geeking with me.

If you'd like to bring a pair of basic tumbler/beaker glasses to 12th Night, I'd be happy to purchase them from you there. Then take 'em home and paint 'em up for Skeg and Taisiia...

Is it ok if they are the slightly blue/green tinted window glass? It's what i have in my furnace right now.

Yup, sounds fine. The graphic design I paint on it will look fine, especially if I do it in gold...
