Inspiring materials, colours and techniques to occupy the idling mind

I simply adore working in the medium of glass. The multitude of colours is always inspiring and the many different techniques available makes sure you are learning something constantly.

Whether it is with sheets of glass, which I cut to shape and size with the help of a pattern and a few hand tools; with rods of glass, where I use an oxygen and propane lampwork torch to melt shape and form the glass into beads, and various shapes and forms; or kiln working, where the glass is cut and arranged in the kiln to fuse together, I am in my element. (Which, for someone who studied Chemistry is really quite exciting!)
I love the challenge glass as a medium presents - the working out whether or not the colours are going to look as I want them to look.
Working out if I layer this colour on that colour, or put this metal in as an inclusion - will it work?
Even looking into the whys and wherefores something hasn't quite turned out as anticipated (why did I get that grotty grey colour on my bead/ that big bubble in the plate/ why did that glass not fuse together correctly? ) All answers to questions that will keep the scientific mind occupied for hours giving me hour and hours of fun.

Perhaps I am easily pleased? No, not really just a bit of a perfectionist - nothing is ready to show to a customer until I am happy it is correct.

In the main, a simple glass polish will bring your items back to looking as new.
