TIS' THE SEASON TO BE THANKFUL FOR THINGS BIG AND SMALL
I am taking a break from glass to work in clay. Clay allows you to explore shape and designs which will help you to take working in glass into whatever direction you wish to go. So far I have been exploring the limits of clay and using my [Precisous Metal Clay] tools which is far easier in regular clay than Precious Metal clay which I had a brief relationship with. Eventually, I will combine the glass with the clay but right now I am learning.

FICTION ROMANTIC AUTHOR
I started working on the torch in 2003 setting up my torch station in my home. Like many I started with Moretti Glass, a Minor torch and no kiln. The first six months was interesting with some very unattractive beads. I then upgraded to a Lynx [still my only torch] and a Toolbox kiln by Don McKinney [I still have it]. My next upgrade was for a generator that would run my torch since getting oxygen while working full time in a law firm was very difficult. After a few years of working with Moretti glass, I switched to Bullseye Glass. I have bought tools and have a lot that I don't use but I do have small tools that stay near my torch. I am now creating with boro glass. Each time you change your set up or your glass, the learning curve starts all over again.
My publishing of my writing started in 2007 and my first novel was published in 2013. My stories are romantic, often historcial settings either out west or during the Civil War. I love to write and I love to make glass flowers.

There are two things that everyone should do during the day - sing and write - even if you can't carry a tune or spell a word you should just fill your soul with both.
