But the moon is getting full – and that seems to be stressing me … not that last night was bad – but I didn’t know the lunar status last night. Now I do … With the larger-than-desired condition of the moon – and the fact that I can’t sleep … we’ll do a ‘lunar post’:
I’ve been somewhat productive in the warm glass studio … Here are some before and after shots:
You’ve heard of the Blood Red Rose, right? … Well, I thought I had something just as beautiful going with this night light … (before fusing)
Nope … I’ve renamed it the ‘Blood Clot Rose’. I don’t know if I can salvage it – I will try (before adding it to the large pile of scrap glass) …
I have had some successes … I love these: (Before firing and after)
This one was also beautiful before … DH was most impressed. It’s okay in it’s current stage. I know what I’d do differently now. But time to put it back in the kiln for another round or two and see how it evolves … here’s what we’ve got now:
I have an experiment in the works that I’ll share in a later post … it has to do with this rough piece: Isn’t it gorgeous?!? … I think I can successfully make some new fused glass ‘objects d’art’ with this process I’ve got going. It truly is combining years of our hobbies into one!
With that in mind – and the status of the moon-phase … I’m being crazy. Not ‘ER crazy’ … but ‘you really should stop spending money’ crazy. It’s just that I need a few more supplies to carry this idea out to fruition (or failure … ???). So, instead of sleeping – I’ve been internet shopping. Ssshhhh … Don’t tell DH …
