Last Wednesday I went for a walk through the Tyson Wells exhibit for the Gem and Mineral Show. I spent nearly a half hour at this booth as I watched this glass blower make a glass pendant. I am going to tell the story through themes… and will end with a composition of all the photos together.
This first one is liquid… as you can see the heat is turning the glass into a liquid-like form.
Below is an image of the glass blower at this table with the initial slice of glass that he started with.
That purple piece of glass is the foundation of a “glitter” glass pendant, which you will see in the end.
