You lost her.
And now she lights up the night-time sky for her new lover cause he recognized her as the moon.
And you envy him. She could’ve been your moon, but you were too busy chasing the dimly lit stars.
Seattle-based artist Carol Milne knits with glass, or rather, she creates wonderful glass sculptures that make it seem as though she’s either a superhuman glass knitter or in possession of enchanted knitting needles and very specialized gloves. The reality is actually much more complicated, but no less awesome. Milne invented her glass knitting technique back in 2006. It’s a process that involves knitting with wax instead of glass, followed by lost-wax casting, mold-making and kiln-casting.
First, a model of the sculpture is made from wax which is then encased by a refractory mold material that can withstand extremely high temperatures. Next, hot steam is used to melt the wax, leaving behind an empty cavity in the shape of the artwork. Pieces of room temperature glass are then placed inside the mold which is then heated to 1,400-1,600 degrees Fahrenheit depending on the type of glass. Afterward, the piece is slowly cooled over a period of several weeks, followed by a careful excavation process, where Milne delicately chips away like an archaeologist to reveal the final piece.
Thank you so much! I really needed that tonight ❤

i felt obligated to reblog because a couple of days ago, a very kind older woman paid for my drink at starbucks just because she had extra money on her giftcard. with all the hate in this world, it’s nice to be reminded that, sometimes, people can be so very kind.

It’s interesting to note that that the garments that have a cross over style when worn correctly are all worn with the left breast over the right.
They are all mesmerizing!
It’s the same with Gi’s (karate suits) :)
So when winter hits, my depression becomes worse and I slowly stop eating. Today for example, I haven’t eaten today but my best friend made me order a pizza for us so we could eat dinner and he can make sure I’ve eaten. He does this a lot. Without him I probably wouldn’t have eaten so many different times. They’re not kidding when they say that ED’s are life long. A lot of people don’t relies this.
