Heart of glass

Yes, this is a 1980s reference to Blondie, but it’s also the beautiful result of our family trip to Elements Glass.  We’ve gone to Elements before to blow glass for Christmas ornaments, and for glass pumpkins at Halloween, but these were even more fun because they’re solid – no air bubbles – so we got to do a lot more hands-on work turning the glass in the fire, and spinning it in the colors, and using tools to twist and pull the hot, melty glass to form swirls and feathering and other neat effects.  All three of my girls got to do just as much as us adults, and they had a great time.  Love ’em!
