Workin’ it out …

I’ve got all sorts of mixed media ideas … so now begins the trial phase.  Between embossing and painting, metal and glass (stained and fused) … Wow!  I’m  eager to try my own spin on this print:


In the meantime, I decided to frame/hang my tree of life experiment.  I plan to make another – this time with some adjustments for a night light.  But I like this hanging in my studio … And here’s something I’m trying on a slumped bottle … we’ll see how it fires:

My coral bowl didn’t fair well … the mold is all wrong – too shallow and I think a drape is the way to go … next time.  But, my beaded slumped bottles are photographing nicely:

Now it’s time to go make dinner (squash soup! on this cold winter day) … while DH is picking up some glass supplies. Smile  Here are a few pictures of the pups – too cute!!

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
