Crummy – but working on it …

Had a first for my little rural county last night … 2 back-to-back SANE calls from unrelated assaults.  Our program provides treatment for rape victims 13 yrs old/older.  Both of my patients met criteria, but barely … OMG!  What is going on with my community!?!  This will require major therapy (shopping) for me … and I’ve locked myself in the studio.  Of course, I’m still on-call for the next 6 hours …

spoon-rest-blankIn an effort to help me through my depressed mood over the state of our society, DH changed the blade in my ring saw to a ‘super cutter’ … I can now slice through quarter inch glass like it’s nothing … It helps.  I’m cutting blanks for bright, colorful future spoon rests.

Ran both kilns yesterday (the studio was quite toasty through the night) … a de-bubble program for the coffin and a new blank from the production kiln.  Here’s the latest blank … I was shooting for bright, Caribbean colorful.  It’s pretty and colorful, but doesn’t exactly have that “Caribbean” feel … Hmmmm …

And I have some new ornament ideas I’m trying to work through from a production standpoint.  Keeping myself busy … Yeah, it helps.  This pic does too … 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
