Another study on slag lamps.

The slag lamps getting easier to complete. I plan on a few different sizes with a large 3' round by 2' tall piece as my largest and a few more small round and square pieces to perfect my technique. I would like to do a 6" round tube by 4' but have yet to order the material. Here is my latest color and shape. 
On a maritime note, Svetta called today and told me she has confirmed her berth on the Bounty for the voyage across the pond. That is exciting. She is very nice and a competent sailor. I feel better knowing she is going to be up in the rigging. Svetta is currently crew aboard a masted yacht in the Sausalito area up in Northern California.

a favorite photo of a favorite person

I took some photos of my friend Drews earlier this year and this is one of my favorites. 

Killing time before returning to the ship.

I have been trying to fill my days lately and knocked out a couple slag glass lamps. Along with numerous trips to the chrome/polish shop, I have few new ways to kill the hours until I answer the call of the sea. Custom panheads and vintage lamps.
