New Pictures & New Stuff
We enjoyed having my dad and his wife over to watch glass blowing for the first time. I can't believe he took me serious! He got 3rd degree burns on his hands. After getting out of the emergency room he said. . . (Never mind what he said)
My dad likes John Deere tractors. I blew him a oil lamp complete with refigerator magnets to complement the John Deere green and yellow color scheme.
On a more uplifting note, I like the system 96 nuggets better. It seems like the glass comes out more clear than the spruce pine batch. Krista helped me lip wrap the purple pieces with the green lip wrap. That was only our second time. We will get better with more practice. I really like the purple with the green lip wrap combination. I am going to expand on that series. I also blew some purple and black and really like that color combination.
I also added some more pieces to the Tiger Stripe Series. If you see something you like and you want to buy, let me know what piece you are interested in and I will price it for you. Also, many are on display at Italian Jim's Pizzeria @ 342 S. Mustang Rd in the Yukon area. I now have so much glass that I bought another display case. I need to tweak it a little bit with some track lighting and should have it installed @ Italian Jim's PIzzeria in a couple of weeks.
Just wanted to use this last paragraph to say hi to my #1 boy! Hello Micah! Look forward to seeing you this weekend at your homecoming game!
