The rules are: Comment to this post and I will give you 5 subjects/things I associate you with. Then post this in your LJ and elaborate on the subjects given.

I suppose this is what I get for asking Ro:

gaffing :: I am a gaffer, it's what I do. I've done for years even while attempting to do other things such as waitress or maintain some semblance of a relationship. Blowing glass is so much more than just making a bubble in molten substance gathered on a hollow pontil. It starts with mixing and heating the raw materials. Sand, sodium...whatever else you require for color and sheen, opacity and luster. It's water and air and a steady hand. Well, really, I suppose I could talk about this all night, but I'll spare you.

jewelry :: Some of what I do with the glass I blow. I make jewelry. Of course I also make jewelry out of other things, like guitar picks for instance, or a handful of dice and game board pieces. I also have a habit of changing my jewelry frequently. I don't have any one piece that I wear constantly.

beauty :: Keeping in mind that it was Ro who chose this, I'm simply going to say thank you and be presumptuous enough to assume he is referring to my glasswork.

grace :: Something that I am working on achieving once more. It's somewhat vital to working glass and Ro has seen me in action in the studio before. Balance, a steady hand, control, precision...it all leads to perfection when I'm working.

passion :: Something I believe all artists have for their given craft. Without it, there is no art, just tedium and a task that has to be completed. Going through the motions. Passion is what drives us to create. When someone has it, you can almost feel the fire they pour into their work.
