    Default KellyPowell progression thread

    Hi! I had a little experience with glassblowing, but have been off the torch for four years. Getting started again and would love to get some feedback and advice.
    Thanks everybody!

    Practicing marias by making some dabbers. Have never used a dabber myself, would love feedback on shaping, sizing, and anything else. Thanks!

    Thanks Misha!! : )

    Broke at the moment, but once I have some spare cash and some time off, nothing would make me happier.

    Maybe in a couple of months?

    A couple of efforts from the past week.
    Skull marble is about as big as I've gone so far, 1.8" approx.
    The chaos fume/opal marble pic is from the best possible angle : )
    From another angle you can see a big flat air bubble trapped behind the opal...
    Still pretty stoked about it.

    Really great job on the fume, I'm jealous. For opals I just work it as slow as possible to reduce air chances.
