I had the opportunity to experience glass blowing this last Saturday. My son gave me a gift of a glass blowing class.  The teacher has over 20 years of experience. He did about 60 percent and left about 40 percent for me. Which seems about right since I didn't know anything about glass blowing. 

 Here are photos of the process.......

It was a hot day and the kilns were so hot. I am glad this is not my full time job, 
or it would only be a winter time job ~smile~

It looks like my vase  is orange, that is just because it is HOT, HOT, HOT glass.  It is really the greenish color that can be seen in the last photo as the teacher is taking it off the pole.

And my bud vase revealed........tune in tomorrow.
