I have always loved glass, but not been in a huge hurry to learn the craft of flameworking, but I may be about to change that. Yesterday, my new friend Berna Kilic http://www.adaglass.com/ agreed to sit down and show me how to make a bead. This is what she whipped off! Amazing! I would assume that something she is able to whip off would take most others quite a long time. She is quite accomplished. I've got some unconventional ideas for incorporating glass into my work, so I think a workshop is in order, then we'll see what happens. I'm really into fire and melting things, so I think I could love this. I'll keep you informed. Thanks Berna!
