So I am out of glass.
1000 pounds of the stuff is now floating around this world having been teased, tweeked, and twisted by yours truely. It is strange to look back and think about that 1000 pounds of glass. The day that I had to pick it all up and load it in truck seems like forever ago.
I said "That amount of glass will last me like 5 years!"....well it lasted exactly 13 months. That means that I used about 76 pounds of glass a month. Honestly that is not that much when you consider that a pumpkin often times can be a couple pounds of the hard stuff.
So I blew the last bit of glass Sunday night and shut it all down for a bit. Maybe just 2 weeks, maybe more. I am just not sure yet. Granted I have stuff that I need to make next week and I will just rent out the Belmont to do that. I will also have it up and hot before my brother gets here for the holidays as we need to have fun at S3G (Strong Street Studio Glassworks).
So for now we are cold until I catch up on all things that got put on hold making all the crazy glass stuff happen. We need to redo some of the studio for a packing/photo station. We need to get the torch set up for Mini and we need to just kind of put some time into what worked and what did not. It is time to streamline! Well ok that and eat turkey.
