Zen Velvet

The remains of a spectacular, if I do say so myself, red velvet cake.

Today was a great day. My kiln and concentrator, the rest of my (indecent) glass stash, tools and glass books were moved into my studio. Tomorrow I unpack. Later in the week, if I am lucky, the set up will be complete and I will begin making glass.

I get nervous just thinking about it. It's been so long since I had my way with the flame, perhaps I have lost my touch, perhaps I will hate this new torch, what if I don't use the concentrator right? It's not at all like me to be skittish but this whole process of setting up a studio has been so infuriating difficult. Unforeseen delays after uncontrollable delays at every turn. I cannot imagine that mu luck will turn around and somehow things will all go smoothly from this point forward. I need to 'chin up' and get my zen (whatever will be will be) mojo working.

Soon, there will be glass. Say it with me... soon there will be glass.
