so I went to this little thing called a flame off…its a great glassy gathering with fab people and beads and torches to play with, demos to watch, and the worst thing about it is it only happens once a year, oh, and its the law to spend all your money and then some!
I also did a days course with the wonderful Marshall Hyde, who is not only brilliant but generous with knowledge too. very inspiring and confidence boosting! Thankyou Marshall!
heres some pics of my buys, my swaps, a few of the class beads I made, and all of it back in my studio (which is coming along nicely!)
also in there is a sneaky peek of the thing I made today that I am really really hoping comes out of the kiln the way I think it went in! fingers crossed! eeek!
