circumhorizontal arcs photographed by (click pic) david england, andy cripe, del zane, todd sackmann and brandonrios. this atmospheric phenomenon, otherwise known as a fire rainbow, is created when light from a sun that is at least 58 degrees above the horizon passes through the hexagonal ice crystals that form cirrus clouds which, because of quick cloud formation, have become horizontally aligned.

These are a few pieces my friend has blown and is selling. The top left is a pink pendant and it glows in the dark for $20. The top right is another amazing pendant for $25. The black Sherlock is $35. (All plain colored pieces are $35) and the last bottom one is a spoon for $30.
I have a friend who is just starting out his glass blowing career, he’s only been doing it for a few months but he’s awesome at it. He wants to get his name out there so if any of you guy wants to buy a custom pendant, chillum, Sherlock, bowl, mini rig, whatever message me and he’ll start making something for ya. Prices will just vary, but right now he’s not trying to make a profit but just to get his name out there. He probably won’t charge for labor either, just glass. His name is Sean Moss and he’s awesome! Check out his Instagram for some pendants he’s made (seanthebossmoss) and message me for a custom piece! Also, if you buy a piece from him I’ll throw in some goodies:)
If interested, message me or email Sean at email@example.com :)
Sticking tape on a frosted glass makes it see through. Air and glass have a very different refractive index, so if you have a rough glass surface, the incoming light is scattered in all directions, thus blurring the image you see through it.
Tape has a similar refractive index as glass, so if you stick it to frosted glass, the sticky material will fill out the little bumps in the glass. The non-sticky side is practically flat, so by sticking tape to the frosted side of glass that’s frosted on one side, you are essentially making it flat again, and making the glass clear.
