Sean Michael Ragan - Dangerous Man Alive

glassblowingclass Secret Santa: Sean Michael Ragan   Glass Blowing ClassFor this year’s MAKE Secret Santa gift exchange, I was happy to have pulled Sean Michael Ragan out of the virtual Santa hat. In an effort to help Sean become the most dangerous man alive, I’m giving him something that will help round out his already diverse knowledge base. I know he has expressed interest in glass working in the past, so I’m gifting him a beginner’s 3-hour glass blowing experience at Glass Blowing Austin. The class is limited to just four students, each of whom make their own paperweight by the time class is over. While Sean may not walk out of the workshop that day as the next Dale Chihuly, he can continue to learn the craft with private lessons or work on his own in the studio.

And if that doesn’t make Sean dangerous enough, I figured I could also throw in some iron oxide, aluminum powder, and magnesium ribbon so that he can whip up a batch of thermite at home. Nothing says “happy holidays” like a spectacular thermite reaction, right? Merry Christmas, Sean!
