When i go into the studio to work for the day i really have no preconceived idea as to where or what i will end up with. I often just start with a color and go from there. The flame is intoxicating as it flickers and jumps around and i find myself often daydreaming and not at all thinking of what i am making at all . The whole process is very mechanical , the melt the form the finish .
It can be very liberating as the glass melts and droops and is quickly turned over and formed . I find often that i am thinking of a person or place while torching and that those thoughts turn into the glass piece i have created.This recent session ended with these nugget shaped beads now a whole new process takes place . What to make with them ?
