    ^^^^lol, I guess if you think so.

    I am getting much more control on my line work, here is one of my first ornaments i made for my mom. I had to pop a hole in the bottom, so i could put the loop on, but i will definitely keep working on them for the holidays. Anyways i do have more pictures but i cant upload anymore with out deleting some off the forum, but i dont really want to do that.

    That was easy. I am just going to use Glass Pipes from now on and put a link in.

    I have been making more bubblers. Here is a link to them.

    I was able to figure bridging, so my welding is a little better, but I am still having trouble making the flat spot on the bottom. I really need to keep reminding myself to look at all the angles. Although it gets tricky because i am working in such a small space, and I am constantly bumping into things.

    Finally i am almost done.
    So i started off just wanting to change my hood and i ended up doing just about everything. I raised my bench, added some glass storage, installed new fan, and a complete electrical rewire/upgrade. I cant wait to get back on the torch and fire up the f130. I really wanna try and make a mini tube.

    Onto my glassblowing, I have been torching just about everyday. Mostly making the functional stuff, but with it being craft fair season i am starting to do more jewelry and ornaments. I did my first craft fair of the season not to long ago. Ill add of pics of that. It was pretty good, the weather was not the best but i still made out.

    Here are some newer pendants and sun catchers or something. I am still trying to find a market for those. People seem to like them, but most dont know what to do with them. I am getting great feedback on my pendants though. Im am going to sign up for a fair in Boston, once i get stock up again. I checked it out the other weekend and it seemed like i could fit in well there.

    Nice work. If it were me I would bridge them and work that curve alot more. The hardest part for us when we start makin locks is getting that curve to flow smooth.
    It takes alot more heat and time than is thought at first and for some reason when we are still noobs, we fear the time it takes to make it flow and rush to get stuff back in the kiln so it won't spontaneously break, hehe.
    Some of the curves can take upwards of 10 minutes to get em right. I work stuff like this all the time without a klin. Batch anneal at end of day.
    Oh and this is not meant as anything other than a little help from someone who has been where your at.
    Stuff is looking good.

    Haha wicked true I been having a super hard time getting a look I am happy with. I really do want that nice flow from one to another. I guess ill just try and make a much simpler one and see what happens.

    Also this goes to everyone who reads this I take no offense in anyone trying to up my glass game. I dont offten meet many glassblowers and fewer have seen my work in person so let it rip. I've been torching for years by myself and am so bored of it.

    Here's the trick.
    Once they are bridged , you need to use a much larger flame than you are and use gravity to your advantage for the nice swoop.
    Get that fucker ripping hot and let it drop while you are simultaneously giving it a little side to side swing action. This will help move the glass down and out to the sides at the same time.
    Pay close attention to the fact that it is gonna damn near close up on you so you will have to apply a few puffs but not hard ones. Very short and steady. Don't be afraid to turn upside down and let it go back a bit towards handle if it gets a little droopy and long.
    All my shirlock connections look similar to yours halfway through the melt.
    It just takes more heat and more gravity than you are using now.

    Like I said, at one time this one also had a similar look as yours.
    More heat and gravity and you will have those things flowing.
    Good attitude as well, which is why I took the time to explain.
    Good luck.

    The last piece you posted , would require alot more heat on the side with the bowl. This will all move toward the bottom and get a nice flow with alot of heat. And a few steady puffs.

    Sometimes it will move your joint seam up towards the handle but as long as the flow is good , nobody will notice.
