second act

a life story's beginning
can end all of a sudden,
after years of joy and struggle,
and its passing may seem sad.
but if we always stayed the same,
there'd be no beautiful second act

every glassybaby gets trimmed, on its way out of the hot shop. we always recycle that glass, but now we also have a gorgeous way to reuse it'

each ‘second act’ glassybaby gets its unique beautiful swirl from fragments of 43 other glassybaby colors, including favorites like ‘gratitude,’ ‘express yourself,’ and ‘skinny dip.’ each of these colors behaves differently, in the furnace, and when they’re combined in a ‘second act,’ we discover a beauty that’s seasoned, and yet brand-new.
