    thanks everyone

    wireman: getting burnt isnt so bad; it's getting cut that really is annoying! if you don't like callused hands then glassblowing is not for you haha

    I'll definitely be ordering one of those little octopi from you, Trevor.

    I'm a metal sculptor, my hands are already thickly callused. No amount of callusing can prevent metal cutting wheels from cutting halfway through a finger, which has happened. Glassblowing should be a walk in the park after metal casting.

    for sure. i've met a lot of people who are just too afraid of the glass to ever get good at it. it's definitely not for the timid. expect pain and frustration! and be prepared to "get used to it" for the first 2 or 3 years... i rarely burn myself anymore and cant remember the last time i got cut from a rod snapping in my fingers... if i do get burnt its very minor and usually just involves opening the kiln door. i really should insulate those handles...

    Insulation would be a good idea. Chihuly never got to the skill he is by fearing his medium, and his body shows it. The main problem I'm having is finding a hot shop in my area.
