I am making boro Cherry Blossoms that Lewis will attach to a boro bonsai tree. The Cherry Blossoms are paramour pink with a boro coral stick and green. The tree is Grisley Brown which is the base of the flowers. There are 29 individual pieces of flowers and leaves. I think 26 were used.
On March 13th - the event was postponed and no new
date is scheduled yet.
All scheduled classes by Lewis and out of town shows are
postponed due to the Coronavirus
As of November, we are still locked down in New Mexico
with no shows or classes rescheduled.
I will update when I have new information.

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.
