its magic stick time!

now and again we get the chance to blow a little glass and have some fun here at pilchuck. on this particular night we decided to play magic stick.  players bring with them to the game an object to be used as a tool to make a cup. no other tools are allowed except the glassblowers bench. as someone goes to the furnace to gather some glass we choose a tool for that person to use and place it at the bench. the tools that were brought out for this night were: a carrot, a tin can, an empty mapp gas bottle, a cinder block, an apple on the end of a steel rod, and a chicken thigh leftover from dinner. the fun and laughter was only silenced by the smoking stench of burning chicken skin!
