  •   Wish I'd bought this sooner!

Pros : Incredibly easy to set up and use. Very easy to clean.
Cons : A little messy as water sprays out the side and back. I put a rolled up towel in the "spray zone" and that keeps the mess contained.
Other Thoughts : I started working with glass just over a year ago and did not buy this grinder until about a month ago because I didn't think I needed one. This grinder is phenomenal and has completely changed my game. I'm able to get the pieces, shapes and precision I need in a fraction of the time. I've spoken to many artists who have this very model and quite a few were still using the same one The bought 20-years ago. Very happy with the Glastar!!!

When and how did you get started in stained glass? Ive been interested in stained glass for as long as I can remember. As a child, I would sit in churches and watch the (often) biblical depictions come to life when a stray ray of sunlight cast its illumination our way. Sun shadows dancing. I dabbled in many media over the years, trying to find an outlet for some of the visions careening inside, but none of them took. Drawing, painting - even watercolours - no amount of professional training could guide my hand in a satisfactory way. But then there was the glass. I lived abroad for a few years, and wound my way through Europe on my way back to the States when I finished my Peace Corps Service. My last international destination was Paris, where one of my closest friends lives as an organist. Two beautiful autumn

Chances are, right now, in reading this blog post, youre avoiding an overdue task. I too was avoiding a laundry list of work-related tasks in writing this. Procrastination is a part of life, and its certainly always been a part of mine. As a teenager, my parents would accuse me of putting off everything from piano practice to math homework. Id vehemently deny their charges hissing back, I work better under pressure. The truth was, I often felt overwhelmed, under-productive and anxious. Over the years, Ive been able to combat my avoidance issues using 4 tools. The trick is constantly reminding myself of these actions, because they do not come naturally to me. 1. Just Say No. I say yes to everything. Need someone to head up that event? Sure. Want me to design 12 posters for the Car Wash? No problem. Take your kid to daycare? Of course.
