  1. Tomorrow is my first class at Newtonian Glass in Berkeley, Ca. I am so excited! I will be posting all my progress here and in the future I will be taking custom orders if anybody is interested in my glass. Please subscribe to this tread and let me know how im doing. Thanks! 

     
  2. subbed bro. i have a very strong interest in glass blowing myself. if you can, get the books contemporary lampworking volume 1 and 2 by bandhu dunham. loads of useful info. 
     
  3. Awesome!
    Much luck
     
  4. Day 1: vortex marble (attempt) and vortex pendant
     
    I will get a better view of the marble, it looks alot better on the sides. Also didn't smooth the bump, on the bottom, out on the pendant, but its only my first one.      Sublime loop.

  19. A lot of cool stuff in here, quick question. With the implosion marbles you have done like the flowers and stuff, can those same designs be made into the little bumps that some pipes have? Like I think it would be so cool for a pipe to have one of those bump or marble things with the flower implosion you made.
