He's been

He seems to enjoy his new profession....

They stock a good variety of glasswares....but more interesting...Vos told me of a "friend" I should go meet just outside of town...

So, I took his advice and left them to work under the supervision of their other customer....

Very nice build, really like how clean it is! The chimney is neat and I like the hints of dark red! Next time though, you might want to try to avoid the green stripe at the bottom of the border; it looks a little out of place. Nonetheless, you have my thumbup.gif !

I love how full of life you've made this little build. I can almost hear the glass and feel the heat from the flames.

Very well designed and build!

It really looks like a glass blowing workshop.

The scenery is good too.

How did you make the fire?

This may well be my favorite free build in BoBS yet and I like the choice of white for the walls. The design is neat and tidy and the subject matter is unique. The furnace looks appropriate for glass-working with the bulging rounded parts and the depiction of the actual glass-blowing is nice. The shelves of shiny new bottles is a good way to detail the side of the build and it has a certain cheery feel to it all. Lastly, it's a fine companion to your next scene, which I just sampled... uh, visited. Good work and I approve!

Edit: Oops, I missed the spoiler pic. No big surprise but a good technique nonetheless. You're putting very good effort into these. Keep it up.

I saw your sugar cane still prior to this one, and I liked it. This one, however, is better and even more refined. The varying techniques used in the oven and the overall concept is amazing. I am enjoying looking at the details.

+1 from Corrington
