I stopped by Glass Shack north of Kingston, Ontario.
Super lovely little studio where a plethora of glassblowers spend time on the torches!

@BonitaTricOm photo of pipes made by … ? Holler if you recognize the work please!
I love all their stuff! I love what they make and the colours they choose! Also, let the record show, the great folks at Glass Shack are cat people and @chefbuddersglass is too!!
Bad news: I should be blowing glass today but instead I have to move.
Good news: This little kitty toe pendant I made has found a good home!
I’m pretty into putting spots on my pipes but sometimes I put stripes on them instead. This little translucent thing is a pendant. Note the bail (loop). For some unknown reason I’ve been shaping my bails with a tungsten pick forever. I just started using a reamer instead and it is definitely a far superior tool for making the hole in bails smooth.
Have I mentioned how totally obsessed I am with making mini-pipe pendants out of borosilicate? Probably …
This little blue and purple number has found a good home.
This is a little glass cat paw pendant I made at The Glass Forge in Western Ontario. The black is a mystery, the bail is made with “Purple Rain” and the paw pads are done with “Wisteria.”
I’m going to give this pendant away (not with the chain). Comment on this post (or my related posts on Twitter or Instagram) if you want me to enter your name in the draw!
Winner will be announced next Caturday.
