‘Crabby Sue’ … Weekend Wrap Up

crabbyThat was me this weekend … I need to apologize (again) to my co-workers.  A week of too little sleep had me too short-tempered to be around.  The bad news … I don’t see any additional sleep coming this week – as we are still on pup-watch with Sienna, supplemental feeding Mattie’s pups and keeping a close eye on Mattie’s caloric intake.  The good news is – they say identifying the problem is half the battle … ???

Meanwhile, in the studio … my coffin has been busy.  Had my slump-run: Some nice things, some things that have potential and some things that will be re-worked.  Photo of projects I like below.  The coffin is cooling down from a bottle slump now – as I purchased a new wine bottle bowl mold and flat mold I was eager to try (photos to come later …).  Once the coffin cools, I’ll be reloading it to do a flattening/de-bubble run.

Now that we’ve entered warmer weather, I’m finding I am selective about the time of day I run the coffin.  It’s no fun to work in the studio when it’s 100 degrees … with frequent insomnia while trying to maintain some semblance of day-shift hours – that timing thing is tricky!

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
