I have been on the torch melting glass like crazy. When I'm in torching mode (as opposed to silver creating and jewelry designing. or, to be honest, just screwing around) I am in the zone. I find it totally meditative and relaxing. It cleans out my brain in a way nothing else does. And the colors. It's like opening a brand new box of crayons everyday. Can you smell them? And then LAYERING colors. That changes everything. I think I'll allow myself a few more days with glass, then I better move on to the next thing!
