Happy Caturday!

Here are a couple of glass cat paws I made. I like to make them as a warmup on the torch. Working on adding more detail (like the claws) but want to keep them cartoonish and fun!

Hi. I live with O.C.D.

I find writing about how Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) impacts me extremely difficult.

Drawing it as a cute little ghost is slightly easier.

It isn’t that I’m embarrassed of living with OCD.

Though it can be super embarrassing.

I wish I didn’t have it but I guess I don’t know what life without it would be like.

All I really know is that OCD is painful to live with and when I try to write about it my head gets all jumbled.

Alchemy Mint Weed Pipe!

Working on applying full colour to pipes again. This one is wrapped with Alchemy Mint from Glass Alchemy! I broke the top of it just as I was about to transfer it to the kiln. It was repaired and now is a little square. I don’t view failed glass pieces as a waste of time, practice is practice and having fun is what it is all about!

The classic question flameworkers get asked is, “how long did it take you to make that?” … the answer is however long the artist has been blowing glass!

Dichroic Borosilicate Fun Failures

I don’t think I’ll ever actually use dichroic glass on the regular but I wanted to know how to work with it nonetheless. The trick with it is, you need to encase it, without the design / film ever being hit by the flame! Here are my learning failures. Maybe I will try again some day!
