I'll Tumble For You

I made this last year, but I want to get caught up on posting my previous projects.  So, without further ado, my first tumbler:

It's a layer of yellow on the inside, and orange on the outside.  You can see the yellow better around the lip. The two colors layers came out really nice. I think the black spots are probably ash from the annealer. 

We were working with stringers and cane to do color texture on the outside, so I decided to do some dots along the outside, thinking it would help me to hold onto it. 

After three dots, I ran out of glass!  Well, bowlers only have 3 fingers, so maybe it's a tumbler for a bowler?

You can also turn it on its side and use it as a putt cup! 

Obviously imperfect, but that's the beauty of beginning glassblowing projects. Or so I've been told. It will hold water and can be used as a tumbler, so it is functional. And I think its pretty.

In other news...

I have now submitted everything I need to get admitted to the Washington bar. Including the money. Now, we wait. It'll probably be about a month.

I received an email today... I get nominated for Yelp Elite!  I'm excited! (And no, I didn't nominate myself!) I added the Yelp review tool to my blog, so feel free to check out my reviews. They sometimes have Yelp Elite events, I'm hoping this will be another way to possibly meet people, especially people who know their way around Seattle!

And no reply yet from Compendium Inc., makers of the "Perfect Companions" journal. I hope it's because they're busy "stopping the presses" and making a new Olive journal!
