Last weekend, I attended an open house for Guustie‘s glass art studio, which she recently remodeled.  She was nice enough to give us a demonstration of how she creates her glass jewelry and it was fascinating!  I love how she makes it look so easy like anyone could just trade seats with her and start melting glass rods into artwork.  She explained that the flame has to reach temperatures in the thousands to melt the glass yet she put her hands so close to the flame, I couldn’t believe it.  Of course, I came away with a haul and some Christmas gifts.  I hope she has another open house in the future, it was a lot of fun.
