Glass Blowing

There are things that come easily to some people. For me, I am more comfortable pushing myself with physical activities than I am challenging myself artistically. I really have never been good at art in any way. Not good at drawing, not good at painting, not good at ceramics….

As one of my 49 Before 50 New Experiences, I decided to put all of that aside and take on something different. I went to Studio West in Eugene, Oregon where they kindly taught me the basics of glass blowing. My final project was a beautiful paperweight and it took so many steps to get there. Fortunately, my patient instructor guided me through the process and to everyone’s delight I didn’t cause any bodily harm to myself or anyone else.
