While I'm Teaching At The Gathering...

Greetings from my beadmaking class at the Miami Gathering...

I thought I'd give you some of the same advice that I am giving my sculptural glass students today...

Graphite smooths, Brass moves.

I use my brass Stump Shaper to move my glass around. The brass grabs it and helps it go where it needs to be. If I just want to gently marver something, my graphite tools work perfectly well. And in my case, it's generally my torch mounted marver that is a part of my daily torching routine.

I'll see you tomorrow. Hasta la vista, baby.
