Last week our Focus on Life was to Create Art. I created class headpins and beads and picked them up this week. It felt like I created more than what is shown below, but I am still learning. The headpins were a bit of trial and error, but I went back this week and created another bunch and started to get into a groove making them. I have tried to limit my color palette until I get better at making beads and I have found it makes it easier to create this way. I ordered some frit, which is small pieces of glass that will add a punch of color that I will experiment with next week.
I think a kiln at home is in my future, so if anyone local wants to sell or lend me one let me know.
Until then, I will go to the Glass House at Workhouse Arts Center which for right now is great. I can learn and ask questions from other lamp workers and that will help me more than having a kiln at home.
