BLOWING GLASS

Another weekend in the forest. So what did we do to keep it interesting? William and I went to a glass house and made hanging glass ball things (I don't really know what else to call them).

Mauth Germany is the home of Glasbläser kunst...a small shop where you can buy various handmade glass items OR with the help of Pavel and Vaclav, you can blow your own souvenir glass ball for 9 euro.




Here we are creating our masterpieces:

The final products
*Granny didn't go with us, but she wanted to hold my ball for a photo. And yes, she isn't wearing any pants. Love her.
