Time marches on …

Feeling a little blah this week … maybe it’s preparing for winter hibernation (mine) or mentally preparing to acknowledge another birthday … anyway, not much in the studio by way of creativity.  It’s been a busy week too though – DARN SANE meeting (people suck!), appointments, airport runs, voting, lots of emails and phone calls  … Wow – no wonder I feel blah! 

A few pendants to add (one of them .925 silver wrapped – see the twisting in the middle, kinda?), along with a wine stopper:

A neat bottle (Twisted Smirnoff), and a pretty blank (I do like these colors):

A spoon rest (no, not UM colors, our local high school’s colors) and a larger platter/bowl – not quite the 16 inches I was shooting for, but a good 14 inches anyway …  I guess it’s not ALL about size, as I think this turned out pretty sharp:

I’m soaking more bottles now, prepping my next ‘blank’ run, and mentally working around why I’m struggling with PMC … here’s my first attempt.  It’s definitely different than working with play-doh or even polymer clay.  Hmmmm …


And our Drucilla (Dru – one of the ‘ugly [step] sisters’, along with her sister – our Anastasia) watching over us as we pack the last of the summer outdoor ‘stuff’ away …


About claytonhill

Artisan of beautiful and functional art, handmade in our glass studio. All items one of a kind due to the nature of our medium. A little about me: As the mother of four children, multiple four-legged 'children', wife and an ER nurse ... I've always found pleasure in pursuing creative outlets. My current 'hobby' is kiln-formed glass. As I never do anything 'half-way' ... my husband and I are really enjoying this medium. Other hobbies have included/include stained glass, quilting, knitting, wine making, candles - oh, and a brief trial of the ancient Ukranian art of etching designs on blown eggs ... don't ask. :) You can view my on-line glass store at www.chneos.etsy.com
