    I am a ceramic sculptor, new to the world of fused glass–and I’m awed by the beautiful work I see here.  What’s in my sketchbook is pretty exciting, but what’s coming out of my kiln is very, very elementary.  I’m excited and somewhat anxious about all the learning ahead of me.  Is anyone else on this website a newbie?  And for those who have reached their stride, how long did it take for you to get there?         


    I’m by no means an expert. Key to becoming better at anything, as you know,  (stealing a line from Nike) is to just do it. As Paul pointed out in his Ten Commandments, the key to proficiency is not in how many years one has been working at something like fused glass, but in how many firings you have learned from. If you fire  regularly and keep notes and pay attention to what has happened, you will certainly be further along sooner than later.
