Spockula … and glass

Poor, poor Zeus … DH was ‘intrigued’ with the idea of having a Neo with cropped ears … so, we had it done.  I’m feeling so bad for my little guy right now … He’s still an absolute sweetheart, but he looks ridiculous!  And the part that’s killing me – I love to grab hold of my Neo’s ears … He still has stitches in – so I’m hopeful that when the swelling goes down and the stitches come out, he doesn’t look so pathetic!  Such a silly thing to do to a poor little puppy!  And the thing I never realized … cropped ears means he’s going to have major issues with swimming or being outside in the rain!  He can’t hold an umbrella … my poor, poor Spockula!

I had it all planned out … I was going to spend yesterday ‘evening’ (about 10pm on …) playing with painting glass on glass.  But it was not meant to be … Instead, I spent my time on a rape case.  Got home just after 3am, too wired up – but not in a creative way – to sleep.

The great news … my large Decadence blank came out looking like peacock feathers … I love it!  Of course, I have to re-flow it, as it’s about an inch thick right now … but here’s what this stage looks like:

Meanwhile, my large Planet Earth II blank is in round 2 of re-flow … and my spoon rests came out great.  Time for a large slumping program …

It’s been a few months – so it must be time … I have a mandatory in-service for work  (ER) later today … I can’t wait to see what new procedure makes my job even harder to do … Disappointed smile

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
