Hello Lightning Tamers!
I taught my first 2-day workshop at Pittsburgh Glass Center for Plasma Globes, a first for PGC as a make-n-take Plasma Globe.
Day 1, which focused on making our globes and shapes in the hot shop and adding the electrode.
Day 2 , the final step involving pumping the Globes, and filling them with Neon or Argon.
I had a good group of students, each supportive and entertained by the new experience.
