Dichro/Ornament Central

So … it’s been a good week!  I’ve been a busy little elf … prepping and cooking glass.  FINALLY finished up some dichro cabs … ready for badge reels and photography.  I’m also playing with some permanent-fuse decals that I’ve had for a while now.  I like ‘em.  And, I have the next batch of cabs in the kiln as I type.  Should be all stocked up for a while!  But the ideas are still flowing, so …

And I’ve been grinding away at glass (yep, manicure is shot!).  Making progress on my cut-fused Christmas ornaments.  They’re still a ways off, but when I pull it together, it’ll be a whole coffin load.

Just came back from the township meeting.  Have our 5 year approval to continue to run our commercial kennel.  Sweet!  (We get to keep our babies!)  I’ve been so productive this week – it’s gotta be Miller time!

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
