mad skills

I mentioned that Ryno and I attended a glass blowing class last month gifted to us by his parents. We had so much fun, and we were excited to pick up our finished pieces last weekend. We both made a paperweight, ornament and bowl or glass. I made the white and gold paperweight, and Ryno made the blue and orange one. In the following photos my pieces are on the right and his on the left. It's hard to understand the scale of the ornaments, but they are substantial ornaments. They were our first attempt to use the blowing technique, so both of our ornaments are incredibly heavy due to our inability to properly distribute the liquid glass. Also, it's hard to tell in this shot, but Ryno's ornament is shaped just like an apple. It looks very fairytale-like... I love it!

ps- we went to classes at Glass Blowing Austin if you're interested; we had an amazing experience!
