Good bead day!

Here is a photo of some of our beads we made yesterday! Larissa of risa beads was also here with Janet and I. Today we worked on silver coring a few of them with Jim Moore's riveting machine!
Janet had such a great time adding the silver cores that we went to Jim's and she bought one! They are so easy to use. Larissa already has one and has been doing some wonderful work with hers as well!

Kicking back......

My good friend Janet Crosby is here and we are just playing around with some odd lot double helix glass. We came in to take a break to find Towanda "kicking back" in the massage chair! We'll see what comes out of the kiln tomorrow and post some photos!

We're home!

We're home! Had a fantastic time in Denmark. The class was great and the students and studio were awesome. This photo is of a bunker which Hitler had built. There are a ton of these there. Some of them are almost swallowed up by the sea. An artist turned some of them into Mules running to the Sea! We went in one of them, it was really kinda creepy.

This photo is from a tombstone inside a church in Ribe. The town was built in 700. The history there is just incredible.

I get to be home for almost a month before I am off to Japan to demonstrate at the Kobe Lampworkers Festival.

I managed to get a few beads on my website, you can view them here!

Hope that everyone is doing great!!!!!
