Silver Lining: molten glass date night

February 28, 2012

molten glass date night


Last week, the mister and I went to a studio to make flowers out of molten glass (technically, out of a molten silica-mineral combination}.

First, we looked at all the creations on display in the gallery.

Then, we saw the wall of all the stained glass this studio has made for temples and cathedrals around the world. Right now, they're working on the stained glass for the Rome temple.


Then, we got to make our own flowers. Like, heavy gloves, molten glass, and everything. It was so fun, and the guys in the studio were easy going and so funny. Also, a 3,000-degree oven and a blowtorch were involved.

Et voila! The final products. 

Hers: dragonfire orange, periwinkle and transparent purple.




His: darker, more evenly shaped, rust red and midnight blue.




Reason #306: he plans the best dates for us. Thanks dear.
