After a class with Emilio Santini,
he showed us some "wax on - wax off"
exercises to improve our heat control in glass.
One of the exercises is to make consecutive
maria (knobs) on a rod of glass and see how
consistent you can get them.
It was really fun and I did learn alot...
but just can't let a piece of glass
be "nothing useful".
Here's my practice necklace ;-D
