Art of Glass Blowing

I'm super excited to show you the finished pieces of glass that I made from Saturday, do you remember the experimental piece that I told you about? Oh my giddy aunt it turned out a little bit special, we were worried that it may of burned and turned out black but it didn't at all.

The video below shows the pieces beautifully.

It actually turned the prettiest colours on first glance it appears to be blue but there are quite a few different colours inside all made from metal leaf that we use in our crafting.

I think I may need to find a job working with Glass Blowing, I'm totally smitten.

This is the glass vase I made.

 

And this is the finished Paperweight.
