    Thank you Gumby! It really is a lot of fun.. lol.. I love to play with fire!!
    She lost herself in the trees,
    among the ever-changing leaves.
    She wept beneath the wild sky
    as stars told stories of ancient times.
    The flowers grew toward her light,
    the river called her name at night.
    She could not live an ordinary life,
    with the mysteries of the universe
    hidden in her eyes....

    I've often wondered about your work with glass, Jul but I always imagined coloured vases and paper-weights. I never dreamed you were making anything as detailed and artistic as these pieces. They are stunning. You are so clever!

    Wow Firemajic, I'm blown away (no pun intended).


    I've seen and watched some glassblower's work both in Europe and the States, but their creations were, like Jen mentioned, in the decorative arts realm. Then in 2013 the wife drug me down to the Boston Museum of Fine Arts to see the Chihuly Exhibit "Through the Looking Glass" and I was amazed by the fine arts realm of such work.


    From the images TK put up, it looks like your work is on a par


    And thank you TK.

    Those look gorgeous, but I can't help wondering about the size. Nothing in the images to show scale, so... approximate dimensions? (I'm not criticizing the pictures; image quality, background and lighting are superb to my inexperienced eye.)

    How sweet the moonlight sleeps upon this bank!
    Here will we sit, and let the sounds of music
    Creep into our ears: soft stillness and the night
    Become the touches of sweet harmony.

    Very cool! There's quite a market for blown glass where I live.
    It all starts with a name and flows from there. A ridiculous moniker springs to mind and it launches like a multi-lubed slippery-sloop down chutes made of buttery-floops. Down, down, down. We watch, spellbound. Rapturous. Glockenspiel. We do our due diligence with penitence and penicillin. Do what’s due, then dew drops on your moon-pops.

    As has been said by others - WOW!

    Those pieces are so exquisitely beautiful they seem unreal.

    I would so much love to have such beauty adorning my home.

    If you talk to a cat they look at you as if you are way below their intelligence to even listen.
    However, when you talk to a dog they look at you with such admiration and really do seem to understand what you are saying.
    Even if it is a bit silly...
    ...they still think you are wonderful.

    I just watched a few videos about glass blowing, and that stuff is really cool. My jaw was dropped halfway through the video, it's really cool.
