I’m back from my trip to Europe, and thrilled to be able to lampwork again. As great as it is to visit family & friends, I have to say I truly miss my work when I’m away from the torch.

And a bit of eye candy to finish this post off. Here’s a big set of 28 beads that I pulled this morning out of the kiln, “Aztec Sunset”:
