    Nicely done dude
    There is an ecstasy that marks the summit of life, and beyond which life cannot rise. And such is the paradox of living, this ecstasy comes when one is most alive, and it comes as a complete forgetfulness that one is alive. This ecstasy, this forgetfulness of living, comes to the artist, caught up and out of himself in a sheet of flame ; it comes to the soldier, war mad on a stricken battlefield and refusing quarter. ~ Jack London

    Thanks for the encouragement guys,
    Doing production type work definitely takes some fun of glassblowing away, but i am trying to press through it. I am still looking for the best way to sell these. I have been mostly selling them without a necklace, but i think they will do better with a necklace. I tired braiding up some hemp, but not sure its worth my time yet.

    Here's the worst part of working more, It just gives me more chances to hurt myself.

    the pic is good, and your pendants are stacking up nicely, but lets hear the gory details, it makes it all so much better

    I just finished making a sherlock, and i have been playing with making them stand, so i set it down in front of my torch to get it to balance. Then i just went to grab it with a pair of tweezers, and stuck my hand right in, and to make it worse the outer flame was on. It was a full retard moment, but I did get some aloe on it right away. Definitely is the worst burn i have had in a long time.

    Here is what i did this week. I was only able to do 25 or so hours, so its not that much. I mostly made sherlocks, but i also made a couple spoons and 10 more pendants. I had a good amount of trouble with the sherlocks and pipes. Out of the 28 sherlocks i tried to make only 16 of them were sell able, so their were 8 complete failures, and 4 that cracked but i think i can fix them. I have also started an etsy account. I have only put up a couple pendants, but i will get more of them up today. If you want to check it out i will put a link to it https://www.etsy.com/shop/LandsGlass
    As always thanks for the comments

    I hope you arn't burning through those two 5gal propane tanks fast, I run (THREE) 281cubic ft oxy tanks. I can burn through 6 of them for every propane tank. The propane lasts a long time!

    Here is my last couple days of work. I was really struggling earlier this week, I just could not blow out an even bubble or keep things on center, so i just stopped working, and walked away before i broke something. Then the next day things just seemed to work. I was pulling perfect points, and was having a much easier time making glass do what i want it to do. I still need to work on my shaping and bowl pushes, but things are getting a bit more comfortable

    Just a quick tip on the carbs, IME putting the carb closer towards the stem part of the piece instead of towards the back, makes for allot more comfortable hold, also you might want to put them down a littler more from the bowl, so your custys arent burning there thumbs! Other than that, your progressions looking good! keep it up!

    Yeah i see what your saying. I did not even think about people burning their fingers. I will try to go a little further back and a bit down next time i make pipes.
    Thanks for the advice

    Well I tired to get some work done yesterday. I made 16 chillums, which is a pretty good day for me. Except i know i could have made more, but once the sun went down i was literally swarmed by mosquitoes. I really need to put up a screen door, or put some side vents in, so i can work more during the night. I also tried to melt some glass today, but it is just to hot outside, and i could not focus on what i was doing. I made one chillum and it took an hour,and the usually only take me 20 or so.
