I guess everyone who does a blog had to start somewhere so today is as good a time as any for me! I have just finished the second bottle of oxygen (two more delivered tomorrow) and have ten Channel coasters completed and ready for firing tonight. In with them I will run some tests on the compatibility of certain float glass with clear 96 which, if they work, will extend my pallette for the Channel images.

I think I am becoming addicted to borosilicate glass – pity it is so expensive – it is so pretty and so shiny, glassy, yummy. A new line of boro glass flowers is emerging – mainly as earrings that have a sort of “Little-Shop-of-Horrors” look. Being boro they should be pretty tough but only the market will tell. 

Well at least this is teaching me to do this blogging!
