I went to a glasswork class with my friend Ione, in San Jose.
Ione making a glass paperweight. It is extremely hot in the glass studio, and we all regretted wearing black.
Me using tongs to pull on the edges of my glass flower.
The glass is fluid, so we had to roll it back and forth to avoid it dripping into a puddle on the ground. Here you can see the flower in progress, from the side.
The finished glass flower. I gave it to Elaine as a Sunfire flower ornament.
The finished paperweight. I gave it to Yishan as a Sunfire paperweight.
