In Pittsburgh, fall is about to end.. and the dreadful winter is on its way.
Grad school had kept me busy for a while...and didn't want to miss out on any of the festivities..so my friend Mindy and me took a trip to the Pittsburgh glass center for their fall event . Their fall event was about glassblowing pumpkins and making Halloween decorations. This was my first experience with glassblowing and I totally loved it. Although it maybe a little dangerous, because you are constantly playing with hot... flaming... molten glass, it was loads of fun !!
Take a visual tour below..

Here you can see the molten glass being dipped into these bowls of bright colors.
That is me blowing into the glass...;)
That is not the final color yet... and see how beautifully the stem is being coiled onto the pumpkin to give a natural feel...
And here is what I created...
My little blue pumpkin...:)..Why blue..coz I just love the color ;)
