Welcome to my new Glass Studio

My new glass studio is up and running, and I've been working in it most days, trying to get my skills back to what they used to be. I'd say my efforts meet with success about half the time, and the other half is definitely a learning experience. I'm not sure if my problem is that my small motor skills are not what they use to be, or my eye-hand coordination; but I suspect that part of the problem is control of the flame. It used to be intuitive, but doesn't appear to be right now. I think tomorrow, I will try my other torch and see if there's any difference. In the meantime, you're welcome to join me in a tour of the studio.
