Thank you very much Mike, Vamp and Wendy! I hope to work with clay again very soon.
Glassblowing is so much fun and very challenging! I always wanted to make my own floats and just get exposure to the whole glass art, it is a great medium with so many possibilities!

I feel the same about floats.. I can never have enough.. After I picked up a book on vintage glass floats, I have become even more obsessed

Thank you!

Here are the some updates, as I promised.
I have recently been commissioned by the new place in town to make some lamps for them.
They have seen photos of my work so order was really specific to what they wanted and what worked for them for the vision that they had.
Here are is what they ended up with, first is a picture that one of the owners snapped of me, when I delivered the lamp:





One of two of my glass blown floats that they have:














The most exciting to make were two custom pieces that I personally just love!!
I have collaborated with an amazing artist and great friend Capt'n Skully and equally amazing artist and friend Bob, to make them super cool and awesome- -Tiki drum lamp (Kona Style Lono Drum lamp) and a skull chandelier, (Matau Skull lamp).



Here are some of the photos of the progress:























SKULLS!!




HOOKS!





FIGHTS!!!!!























I had one more skull left over, so I decided to make a reproduction of one of the Papua New Guinea decorated skulls from 'Oceanic Art' book by Anthony J P Meyer.
He now lives above the bar and named 'The Seventh Skull'





















Thank you for looking!

-Lena


Here is the link to the article, a lot of love went into making this place happen!
