These are some of my favorite pieces I made in my glass blowing class. The one on the left was the first one I blew and I like to call it my miracle vase. It was in the annealer that was set for 13 minutes instead of 13 hours. This caused everything in it to cool rapidly and shatter, shooting glass in every direction. I got the email of the sad news that night and I actually cried because I was so upset. To me it felt like someone had died! It was the only beautiful successful piece I had made so far in the class. At the end of the email my teacher said that there were a couple that made it. When I came in the next day I found my vase had survived!
