    Stoked on this little dish what started out as a disc flip turned into a hollow shelled turtle sculpture which turned into a little dish, gonna make a matching turtle dabber today. Thanks to Axiswolf here on tmp for the jacks they fit my needs and i couldn't have done the dish without them.

    First tube implosions didnt undersant the concept of melting the disc down to get these effects or i would have been doing these rather than the compression

    Ive got a handheld smith torch helping alot on my pendant work making sure everything is nice and cleanly melted in still getting use to it. Adding the horn/spikes on this pendant my hand accidentally jumped up and hit the pendant cracking it was able to save it somehow. i can tell im gonna be making alot more retti and implosion pendants rather than compression from here on out

    First sherlock came about trying to use a messed up pipe that had some nice designs on it, 2 honeycombs at each end
    i liked the colorway and tried knocking out a few only first one survived 2nd one cracked while finished up mouth piece holding in grabbers way to long the white is some import and i can tell it tends to crack a little easier. gonna stick to clear getting a few different styles shapping down try to stack some wig wag/ switchback reversals prep blanks so i can get a few things going at once while i work so when im letting things settle in the kiln im working on something else, ill see if its too much seems ideal to get in a flow and crank some things out. any tips on disconnecting blow tube and getting some clean mouthpieces having trouble with that

    Heat up the connection where your blow tube meets your mouthpiece with a tight, narrow flame. Once it's almost white hot, take it out of the flame and pull them apart quickly. Your goal is to pull that small heated section very thin so it will be easy to pop a hole with your flame. If you can't get the flame to pop open a hole, wait for the thin glass to cool and snip it open with some shears (just make sure to run water through your piece before using/selling). Hope that helps. great work so far!
