I was out at the coast for Memorial day weekend, and saw a sign to "Blow Your Own Glass." I pulled a Yuie in heavy traffic, and went back and talked to the guy. He had some wonderful pieces he had made, and said I could make a flower, vase or ball. I had to think about it 'til the next day as it was rather spendy. But I would easily pay that for a piece of art glass, I'd just as soon have made it email@example.com Oops, just an email, I thought he had a website. Apparently several of the glass blowers working along the Oregon Coast are offering this opportunity to blow it yourself. He is located at the North edge of Florence, Oregon on Hwy 101. He was very patient and explained each step very well, he helped two 10 year old girls blow a globe after me, so anyone really can do it themselves.
I will link this to Nina-Marie's "Off the Wall Friday" click on the badge in the right column, and see what other talented textile artists are doing.
