When Two Hands Are Not Enough!

I'm bending fragile 1mm thick glass stringers in a small candle flame. It takes patience and focus. I decided to do this work over the besheyrt words I make for healing services and various other small group uses. The words are reassuring and actually help me concentrate.

I wanted to photograph myself bending the stringers...but that requires at least one additional hand! Oh time!

Carrying the finished stringers to the kiln proved hazardous....several snapped. I will reheat the ends and "glue them back together.

 The stringers appear black in the photo because  the flame deposits soot on the glass. Soot is carbon, so the soot will burn off when fired.... 

Time to return to the flame!
