Today I received a package from a fellow writer who is also a glass blower, Mike Pennington. Inside the box were two of the most gorgeous glass roses I have ever seen.
One is ruby red, and when the light is right it glows like a hot ember. The other rose is as white as fine china. Their leaves are translucent green with veins radiating from the spines. They are quite incredible!
Thanks to Mike, my droopy plot coalesced into vibrant life – all because of his roses. They added the spark I needed for all of my elements to blaze.
You can see Mike’s roses on his website, http://aurorawolf.com/index.php?option=com_frontpage&Itemid=1 - on the left hand bar, toward the bottom of the page.
