#357: Blow glass

23 Dec

When I think of glass blowing, I think of some guys hanging out in a warehouse, playing with fire, smoking pot and listening to music, working on their art.  I also think of it being difficult.

Sometimes, things are exactly the way you picture them.

But whether the people at the Glass Bubble Project got started with glass blowing solely so they could make their own custom bongs or not, the place is still really cool.  From the chandeliers to the 2000 degree oven, it’s all handmade out of recycled materials.  The art on the wall is crazy and colorful and just my style.  There are no receipts for the class; no waiver forms either.  It’s just one room the size of a Cleveland apartment full of awesomeness.

Other things are not the way you picture them.  I performed the glass blowing like a regular novice without completely messing it up.  My ornament didn’t break and it actually looks pretty good–thus proving even the clumsiest people can be successful at something requiring immense patience if only they’re scared enough.
