nite lites redux

trees
lisa and steph came over saturday night for another round of glass work (here’s round one). we listened to xmas music, and i made a bunch of trees, but i just can’t find my xmas spirit yet. maybe it’s our 50-degree days: it’s just too warm in minnesota to be late november!

but lisa and steph did a great job of making xmas gifts. i can’t say enough how fun it is to have friends over and watch them make really cool stuff:

what lisa and steph made!

top row, left to right, by lisa: loving her truck nite lite, which we affectionately dubbed “the mystery machine”. the second photo is 3 triangle trees soldered together, which we made into a candle holder. and the last piece is a nite lite for a little one’s room — i love the curve…

bottom row, left to right: steph started with a lite, using a purple iridescent glass and beads. and look at her firetruck!  eeee! i love it! and her trees, a gift for her mom…

it was a great night!

    These are amazing! I should have stuck around longer and played with glass. Love the mystery machine and fire truck!

    I’ve been stalking your blog for some time. I am an artist/designer living in NYC. I love these pieces you made. Your site makes me want to move to MN, just so I can work with you!!
