Michigan Blue Slag Glass Pendants

Since my sphere machine had been broken for months, I decided to grind out a few Michigan Blue Slag pendants to knock the rust off my bones. These are the results! One of them is available in my Esty shop if interested. The green one is from Escanaba, MI in the upper peninsula, the other three are from South Haven, MI in the lower south western part of Michigan.

Cool Cemetery Pictures Using iPhone Camera

It was an incredibly foggy day yesterday. It was perfect conditions to go into the cemetery and take advantage of the fog and daylight. I used my standard iphone 4 and stock lens. For post processing I used a great iphone app called Photoforge 2. I was happy with the results. The iphone really makes taking photographs fun and easy. What do you think?

Macro Photos of Recycled Cullet Glass

I am alive still. For those people who follow my blog (thanks, Mom), I just wanted to say after a long hiatus, that I plan to update this thing regularly once again. I took some time off, and my sphere machine broke. I put a bandaid on it for the time being, but I need to replace a motor. I plan on getting another machine going soon also. So stay tuned for more spheremaking on the way! In the meantime, I recently purchased a 3 in 1 lens kit for my iphone 4. I paid $15 but you can get it for under $10 at the moment here: http://www.amazon.com/180%C2%B0-Angle-Macro-Apple-iPhone/dp/B009UQR32I/ref=pd_sim_cps_5 It’s a knock off brand, but is quite great for the money. I took some shots of some cullet glass I had and thought I would share the results.
