Pieces of glass are like little bits of Heaven. Follow my growth, my learning curve, my trail of bandaid wrappers as I foil and solder my way through retirement.

The Eyes Have It
I haven't been able to work on the glass as much as I would like this week, but it keeps coming along, one piece at a time. I originally made the beak out of some amber colored glass, but it was too light and didn't have enough contrast, so I switched it out for a dark brown glass. The eye ring is a dark amber translucent glass and the center of the eye is dark blue. The white glass, Spectrum Firelight, is a little tricky to cut because it is textured on both sides. Sometimes the cutter takes a little unplanned journey of it's own.
