Wanted to pay some respects to the left handed glassblowers, pipemakers, lampworkers, beadmakers, marblemakers, slumpers (we all seem to refer to ourselves as something different).
Once in a while I will hear about someone having a difficult time getting used to using The Ti-Pen and it usually ends up just being that they are left handed.
The main suggestion is to adjust the angle of The Ti-Pen in your hand or the angle of your wrist and see how that works. Writing on a curved surface such as a glass marble or bead can be tricky at first. Start with a very small signature, it will help you control your lines better in the beginning.
*Side note- On The Ti-Pen, the words The Ti-Pen USA are “right side up” when held in the left hand. That is a small tip of the hat to my dad who is also a lefty.*
Many very creative folks are left handed Josh Opdenaker is one of them. You can check him out on Instagram here
