just for grins

I just got this link emailed to me and thought I would share it here. There are so many of this type of video showing up out there, clearly little or no research was done - enjoy if it doesn't make you tear your hair out!

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.

Thanks Donna,
that was fun to see!

I'm impressed they got as far as they did

I think the missing ingredient is two more Mapp gas torches
