Ooh how I love having a kiln! :)
It is a very luxurious feeling to be able to work with the beads I made yesterday, today! as opposed to the 'in 2-3 months' that I am used to.
I also love being unafraid of going larger, although I now have thoughts of how much more glass is potentially wasted in an ugly/wonky bead. Yes, I have a block against wasting. I need to give myself permission to not be perfect, to not making a masterpiece every single time I torch. I'll be working on it ...
Here are my new beads. The smaller one is an example of the size I am used to making.
These 2 are my favourites
Here are my first 2 test sculptures, with a pendant of my usual size beside them.
They are big! for me anyway, but I aim to double this size before long. Sculpting is fun!
and all those are annealed! Yay!
