Where glass straws are made.

This was first my artisan bead studio. Still is, actually, but now this is where I make my glass straws,  using the torch you see in front of the chair, and the kiln to the right. This is a moderately old photo, there are now two kilns, and I am about to upgrade to a new torch called a Lynx, which should open up a lot of worlds both in the bead creation and the glass straw adornment department.

This room was given a ceiling last summer by my Dad, before that it was just rafters and got fairly chilly when working in the winter months, but now it is snug and warm, just with the heat of the kilns going for annealing the straws!
