Glass Fishies from a Field Trip

A local glass studio invited club members to visit for a field trip. One member who had taken classes there before was also invited to make a fish! The fish on the left is what the teacher made as field trip attendees watched. The club member followed along and made the fish on the right. Though she made a few mistakes, the club member was thrilled to work with glass and still rather pleased with her fish.
