    This guys mouth piece cracked/tried to explode when I was flame polishing it, I knew I should have kilned it and also forgot how I normally did things with tongs vs attaching a tube again, cut it off and carved it down a bit after these pics to look better, but I found some cracks elsewhere so now its just my fancy house piece I guess... was a fun piece too. Heavy blue startdust, over raven, over bluV, with white frit inside.

    Thanks, still working on the learning curve of trying to go deep without mucking things up, I have had some good results for the most part. Just gotta get the wet station more enclosed, and find some specific layers of colors, and carve "patterns" I like and keep working with them. Lots of ideas, just gotta put my nose to the grindstone and practice and keep doing it.

    It cracked in the perc when i was adding the down stem. Tried throwing it back in the kiln at a higher temp to mend the crack and it slumped on me. The way it made the body flat was cool though. Oops, try again.
