Made another glass flower the blue part sparkles cant really see it in the picture.

I took these picture outside to see if I could get some better images ,the petals color are fairly subtle some of it is kinda lost in translation so to speak.

Here’s an attempt at working with tubing there almost 3  inches  tall actually manage to get em nice and smooth, all previous attempts have been abject failures and too embarrassed to actually show anyone what they look like.  From what I gather at this points its a whole lot easier working with small diameter tubing.

Photography glass madness.

After years of not having money for a camera agonizing over which one too pick I finally got a pentax K-5 with a 100 mm macro lens.

About the photo: basically what I did was grabbed a dark piece of cloth drape it over a box. I had one of those  garage lights, something like 1000 watts of light, bounced it off the ceiling,  the background was a piece of craft paper kinda an off white.

About the piece: Its roughly 7 inches tall,  made of borosilicate. Petals are composed of two colors one being ns-26 double amber purple and ns-49 dark blue amber purple the stem/body was made of ns-53 forest green.

This is the first piece I’ve done of this size on a torch, I used a nortel minor.

clicking on it brings up a very large pic.

When stuck in analysis paralysis sometime yeh just gotta do it to get out of it.
