Hot glass!

all cooled down

This was inside one of the blue squares, but did not fuse to the sides

I love the reflection of the window in this shot!

Ever really finished?

Are renovations ever really finished?! Well I am hoping my new loft studio area is finished.....well I do need to move the glass saw up there yet. ; )
I did fire Dorothy a week or so ago & wow, it is really great to get so many bottles slumped at one time! But it is a chore to get them out of the bottom! I feel like I should have a safety harness on! lol
Here are a few pics of the finished space & the first batch of bottles:


Small sand blast cabinet I "inherited" from Doug when he got a bigger one!
