Two days after being diagnosed with bronchiectasis - after many "blow into a tube" tests (among others) - I went to the international glass festival, "blew into a tube"...
...and made a bauble!
It felt amazing (and much easier on the lungs than I expected). My summer of diagnostics was transformed into a creative process, producing something I find beautiful.
The final article arrived today (after the professional glass blowers did whatever finishing procedure was required), and I'm really pleased with it.
