Fused Glass Candy Dish

Candy Bowl

I took a class back in Spring 2007 that I really enjoyed at the Vitrum Studio in MD from the same person who taught me to make torch work beads back in Dec 2000. I learned a few more techniques and found that I really want to get a larger kiln eventually. That way I […]

The Holidays are upon us….
