Breaking Glass


No this is not a picture of the contents of my re-cycling bin, it, or rather they, are the result of my second stained glass class (try saying that after a few gins). Unbeleiveably, it seems, they will soon be transformed into something beautiful and useful. I can't say with absolute certainty that this will happen as I have to get all 8 peices to fit together EXACTLY before I can continue to the next stage. This involves alot of scoring, rolling, snipping and grinding. Then I will have to wrap each piece with copper foil, lay them back together again so that there are NO GAPS WHATSOEVER, and solder them together .... they may well end up in my recycling bin after all, but I am having lots of fun trying.

What a great hobby to try out. Looking forward to seeing the results of the (not scary at all) soldering!

Ooh I can't wait to see the finished object! I love stained glass and it's something I've always wanted to try.
