Weapons of Mass Destruction
Cutting flat glass has never been my forte, but while visiting Austin, Jim Berry of Blue Moon Glassworks has taken the time to show me the different cutting tools and how to do it properly.
I figure, if he can teach me, he can teach anyone.
So yesterday, that was one of my goals. To learn how to cut circles, swirling lines, inside cuts and to feel adequate about it.
I am happy to report. I can do it. Woohoo. I know I'm not about to become a stained glass artist, (so much happier melting than cutting), but you know, a girl needs to be adequate when the situation occurs.
So today, we're on to learning to fuse and tonight I'm teaching my Santa Bead class. Such a fun adventure down here!
