I just adore Martinis! hehe, that is a neat wall panel (I think it would be cool on the wall instead as a bowl)! I like the bowl too! Neat work!

Hey Alan you just bought a new kiln so if it's too small let me know I'll take it off your hands!!! You wouldn't even have to deliver it!!!!

Great work, by the way!!!!

Awsome Alan!! I just got back from Vegas... Where I bought what else.. but bullseye sheets and a couple of molds for fusing!
What glass does everyone drool over for fusing BTW?? This is all new to me!! :) I will have to post a pic when I make something! Still soaking up all I can read!

LOL thanks Marlowe....funny you know the small kiln I got I kind of thought I might want a bigger one but now that I have one what I have found is I want more kilns as they run so long it takes two days to do one fusing project and then I can't anneale any new beads....I might have to get a collection of them lol...
