Good news …

The tax man says the kilns can keep kickin’ … YAY!!  I’ll be learning some new business concepts (COGS = cost of goods sold vs. inventory, raw materials and supplies), but I love learning … As long as I get to keep playing in glass!

It’s a good thing too, since I have another shipment coming in from NC … 75 pounds worth of glass and supplies.  And with our tax money this year, we’ll be purchasing a torch to play with some hot glass ideas …

But in the meantime, my production kiln and microwave kiln have been busy with blanks and playing with some cabs and other bowl ideas (square – kinda) … I should be firing up the coffin this week! Smile

And all is good with the puppies … they are starting to play, loving their ‘gruel’ and Momma Liv is starting to get her pre-pregnancy shape back.

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
