New direction...Learning curve!

Wayne is working with a local Santa Cruz glass blower, Chris Johnson, learning to work larger when creating sculptures. He says there is a definite learning curve that is proving quite challenging. Determined to accomplish their vision they will keep working together until they see it happen. After that I'm sure there will be no stopping them! Here are a few shots of them in Chris's hot shop working with clear glass creating a sculpted bird.

Is it a bird yet?
