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.

A Change of Direction
Instead of starting Serena's piece, I got sidetracked in a different direction...actually a different galaxy.I have become entranced with a photo from NASA's Hubble telescope, nicknamed The Pillars Of Creation. I've been trying to figure out how to make it in glass. Should I plate it? Sandblast? While in Angel's Camp last month I bought a pile of agate slices at an amazing rock shop, StoriesInStone.com and I think it's a perfect compromise. Today I worked on the pattern and will probably start cutting glass next week.
