All people are divided into two large groups.
The first — people entering it first say, tell everyone about their plans, trynat themselves without a silent, and only then do something. If they do at all …
The second — here includes those who do everything silently, and only then talk about what has already been done.
Between the first and second group lies the bottomless abyss and the name of this abyss — courage. Not everyone can make a decision and immediately do something even in small things. Especially difficult to make a decision on which your future life depends on.
The heroine of today’s story, as you already guessed, belongs to the second group, otherwise it cannot be, because the courage does not occupy.
She broke himself and her life three times!
All his childhood and youth of Chaina Liebe, a master glass fiber from the USA, did not even think about working with glass. Her parents wanted her daughter to engage in science, literature and philosophy. After school, the girl entered the California State University for the Department of Philosophy, where the piano was seriously engaged in Russian literature and philosophy. The joy of parents did not have a limit.
But she did not become a philosopher — when Chaina realized that he would not be able to sit at the table and think about the table, she … wrote a statement about the deduction.
Chaina learned to a specialist in stamping and metal injection and settled in a private workshop. Two years she was engaged in metal and even received certain fame in circles of art connoisseurs. Only the metal did not touch her for the soul, the girl wanted something else.
The turning point was the day when she remembered how in childhood, at the age of 7 she saw on the street wizard-glassy-glass, which for little money blown for children small glass figures. Chain came to the glass-capacity-workshop and fell in love, fell in love with finally and irrevocably.
For three years, they walked in the search for their direction in glass skills. But one day, her mentor said:
-Well very much like corals and algae, try, dive with aqualling to the bottom and watch.
I do not know how to swim, but I will try.
A few hours later, the girl stood alone on the ocean, with leased ballons behind the shoulders. The man who did not know how to swim, was afraid of water, for the sake of his future, for the sake of finding herself wanted to dive deeply to the bottom.
And she jumped!
The outcome of this jump was the amazing series of works «Wind and Water», which seven times in a row ranked first at the Luis Tiffany glass glasses. In each of her work, a piece of ocean bottom with a huge amount of algae was captured. Each «algae» was stretched out of glass tubes — drilts — manually, and their number reached 40 thousand.
And it is only in one job!
By the way, from the very jumping girl became a professional diver.
But after all, all my life will not create pieces of the ocean bottom!
And Shain began to look for the idea for a new series of works.
«Helped» misfortune — in a born sweet tooth, which since childhood did not think of herself without sweets, cakes, cakes and other sweets, discovered a rare disease — the intolerance to the whole sweet. Sugar, cakes, cakes, sugar substitutes and even the usual honey steel for her deadly poison.
Then Chaina decided:
I can no longer eat anything sweet, I will make «fake» yummy, so that no one can distinguish them from the real.
Already seventeen years of Chaina Liebe makes for himself and admirers of his talent series of cakes, candies and cakes called «Confectionary». Some works are simply impossible to distinguish from the present. So I want to bite off a piece of the cake, eat an eye in a chocolate hare, or scrape from a cake a piece of nut, but no, it will not work. All works are made of art glass, ceramics and even metal by a person who has not eaten a single piece of sweet for more than 18 years.
Here is the end of today’s story about Chayna Life, a girl who was able to turn himself three times and change their lives three times. The next time you have to make an important decision, remember this craftswoman, because «it is better to do once and regret what not to do and regret a thousand times.»
Thank you for reading to the end.
