Hey Donna, Long time!
There is a distinct odor of Marijuana hovering over this entire process making it from "Sand". I do recall doing this with Dale Chihuly behind the El Rey drive in theater in an arroyo back in '73. Only thing we cheated with was a little bit of soda ash since I had no seaweed. . Otherwise, the sand came from the arroyo, the potash from burning wood and the calcium, a gypsum from Alamogordo.

Made really crappy glass but Dale was doing the class in the Indian school and we were supposed to use native materials. I also didn't have a galvanized bucket so we used adobe clay.
Where are we going and why am I in this basket?
