This months Ornament Thursday topic is Brew. So I brewed up a few witches for your viewing pleasure. Glass witches that is. I want to share with you how I started on my journey of witches. I asked my girlfriends to brain storm with me on new ideas for sculptural beads. They came up with a range of things, none of them sticking to my creative side. Then one of them put “witch” out there.
At the time I was pretty young in my lampworking days and just didn’t know how I would go about making such a piece in glass. So I searched for tutorials on one of my favorite lampworking sites lampwork Etc. I didn’t find a witch, but I did find a goddess tutorial by Sarah J Schalken.
I studied her tutorial and spent about three days working on my new witch design, and suddenly she was born. An excellent example of taking someone elses instruction and making it your own.
