New project: Begonia lamp

I have the day off work today. A desperately needed day off. I just finished the book "Serena" by Ron Rash. Man was that good. It would make a great movie. It's about a villainous woman in the 1930's That will do anything to get where she wants to be. A page turner for sure. On the search for something new to read.
I started my begonia lamp. It's going along pretty fast. I seem to be on a red orange yellow green mode. The last 4 stained glass projects show that. I can't wait for the weather to warm up alittle. I really need to start working in the building, getting my studio ready. The below zero temps really put a damper on things. As you can see i work on a table with my grinder, saw, light table and cutting space. Not much room. Glass chips everywhere. I'm not to tidy! Stupid me, went into the room barefoot and got a foot with glass embedded. so small i can't get them out. I always have bandaids on hand, I'm always getting bloody fingers.

Love your little creative spot. Mine looks just the same. Glass everywhere. I did get a wet saw and so now that takes up any bare space. bandaids are my best friends! Sometimes I cover my fingers with them if I am grinding a lot of pieces. I love your work and can't wait until you get that studio open. I would love to come see your work up close. Thanks for sharing your corner of the world with us.
