Yes, I did it again! I was smoking! (In a different way).
I was building up a nice big hot gather of glass for a murrini, when it popped off the mandrel and straight into my lap. While I looked for something to pick up the glass, there was smoke rising up in the air clouding my vision, and making an awful smell. I managed to get the glass somewhere safer, but I had to dump the water from my jar into my lap.
Thank goodness the only casualty was the apron. At this rate I 'm going to have to get several at a time just in case.
