Melting in California & New Beads…


Can you say hot hot hot??? did I mention is was hot here in Northern California…? well it is, we need RAIN, where is the rain?…even with the heat I did make it to the torch one day this week, the rest of the time I was not going to sit in front of a torch when the kiln controller was reading 98 degrees inside the kiln before I even turned it on, that’s with the lid down, doors of the kiln closed & it was turned off…OK enough whining, I did make some yummy beads that I am listing later today…towards 5pm California time…you can check them out here in my shop


Last week I spent some time with my mom, my sister & her 2 sweet kids at the beach having lunch & ice cream…I had so much fun with them…

Last week’s abstract fish creature bead goes to Brenda H. Enter to win this week’s large yummy focal bead make a comment on this post…lets keep talking about colors and shapes of beads if you like, or you can tell me all about the cool weather where you live…wishing for a the summer in Oxford England now that I am in the middle of 108 degree weather here in California…

As you can see there is a link above this post to my next class in Turkey at the Glass Furnace in Istanbul, the best school of glass anywhere…I loved teaching there last year & I am looking forward to my next class, the school is a not for profit organization, so the cost you see for the two week, 6 days a week class goes mostly to the school. This cost covers your room & board & the fun activities for the two weeks that you are in Istanbul for, you have to pay for your own way there…please let me know if you have any questions about this very cool class & trip…from the pool side to the great rooms, to the infinity pool & sitting areas, to the library, the galleries, the shop & the class rooms, to the meals by the river & the very awesome people who run the place, oh my gosh did I mention the food, this is one of the best places to visit & take a glass class of any kind at, mine included…

here is a link to a very large collection of photos & stories from my last class there…I recommend that if you do decide to take this class, take a little bit longer time to spend in Istanbul & other parts of Turkey, this is one part of the world that you must see to believe…I have been 3 times in 2 years & I can not get enough…

Life is good…thanks for stopping by…

Peace…
