MOLTEN MAGIC

In the hands of a skilled glass blower,
glass is transformed from a glob
of molten silica
into colored shapes and patterns
of fine art.

Not every step of the transformation
is predictable, and sometimes results
in disappointment.

But the final successful creation
is worth the the trial, the heat and
the transparent beauty.

(To watch my friend Esteban
is molten art in the hands of a master.)
