New year mission statement

Well it's a new year and I have new goals. I've found myself working in boro a lot lately, loving the colors, reactions and etherial quality it has. It makes me think I am looking for a bit more peace and serenity in my life? My inspiration lately has come from the outdoors, water and interestingly enough trees. I haven't seen the tree's translate into my work yet.

Boro is almost like meditating for me, it's a stiffer glass it moves a lot slower and forces me to slow down. It's also more forgiving for off mandrel style work and I am really enjoying the pod style pieces I've been working on.
