fun with hot glass

We had an amazing time with Kim Fraczek last Saturday. She brought her whole glassblowing setup and made custom pieces for folks who stopped by.

The first was a pair of glass bulb pendants with tiny stone fossils trapped inside.

Another was a piece for this little girl, a small Swiss coin trapped in a glass bubble. Perhaps the coin was a gift from the Tooth Fairy! Here’s a video of Kim working on it.

She also made a ring for Phil in purple and green to match his bowling ball.

The weather was not great at first but it cleared up, becoming a lovely day for a craft show.

And Jonathan’s jazz guitar set was low-key and lovely.

Our next Second Saturday event will be November 14. It will be hard to top this one, but it will be our Second AnniVIXary party that day. The craft show will be on too, moving indoors to Danger Danger Gallery, 5013 Baltimore. (Email satellite2ndsaturday@gmail.com if you are interested in vending.) Hope to see you there!
