Paul’s Glass

My 16-year-old son Paul is taking Ceramics class at Paly (Palo Alto High School). He has recently started to work with glass as well as clay. Paul is looking forward to taking a full year of glass blowing next year. For now, he is enjoying learning to work with rod glass. Each piece has to cool for 24 hours; sometimes the colors change unexpectedly during cooling. I have a feeling we are all getting small glass flowers, leaves, and mushrooms for Christmas presents this year.
