I signed up for an exchange in the glass forum, and it's an autumn exchange so I've been making leaves. I've found that they are addicting and I am having fun with them. Most of these have been done without the use of a mandrel(the rod you wind the hot glass around) with a scissor and knife to make the veins. One of the first times that I have worked off mandrel, and it's not nearly as scary as I thought it would be.
