Vetro Glassblowing Studio - Paperweight

287/366: Let’s Heat Things Up

I enjoyed a date day yesterday with the theme of ‘Let’s Heat Things Up’ which ended up at Vetro Glassblowing Studio in Grapevine. What an amazing experience. We got to each create 2 paperweights, one clear and one with color. Working with the glass and molding a piece of art was a phenomenal time of creative inspiration and a learned respect for the properties of glass. Starting with the glass in its molten form and ending up with something so visually beautiful brings me an adrenaline rush each time I look at my finished piece and a vivid memory of the fabulous day and experience.

This is my finished colored paperweight. I used a combination of 3 colors – 2 blue and a white.
