At the torch

I made beads today. Lots of them! My mom and I took a flameworking class in Scarborough and had a great time learning how to work at the torch. Glass is absolutely amazing when it's heated - becoming like honey and glowing so bright.

They need to be cooled down slowly overnight in a kiln, so we don't know quite how they turned out because the colours are not too visible when the glass is still hot. Now comes the long wait for them to arrive in the mail so we can see exactly what we made. I am the worst at waiting!
