and in a grand continuation with glassworking, here's the long awaited beading furnace.



the grand industry pit. iron ore was also smelted here :)


 
viking style valved belows, into a beehive furnace (which needed to be A LOT larger)

 
up close and personal with the fire. it got so hot i had to work over the furnace. a bit annoying, but them's the breaks.

 
waiting for th ewhole lot to heat up, and then the furnace broken open at the end to see the wall thickness and how far the vitrification went.


 
the final beads produced. ugly as sin, but functional as beads ;)



heroes of the dust bowl. a big shout out to those who helped !
