April 10 – Glass Class

April 10, 2008

Once, when I was working in the flame, trying to melt several rods of glass together, twisting them to create a bead with a marbled effect, the red-hot glass blob got lopsided and fell off.  I had intended something beautiful, but there was nothing I could do.  I couldn’t pick it up – it was too hot!  So I just had to let it go – let it cool – fortunately my work area has a concrete floor.

Later, when I checked on it, I found a wonderful glass glob, striated with turquoise, brown, and ivory marbling – better than anything I could have created, not matter how hard I worked!

Sometimes, the lesson is to just let go – sometimes we are pleasantly surprised!
