Funk, but workin’ on it …

Had my monthly DARN SANE meeting this morning … Arrrgh!  People are evil and sick!  I hate knowing this …

Now, locked in my studio … I am determined to work through the mood-funk.  This means Adele is blasting on the stereo, my most inspiring photo slide show (art/project ideas) is playing on the screen and I putter and play with glass.

It’s helping … I’m making progress on my butterfly.  It’s ready for ‘grouting’ with frit so it can be fired.

My kiln is cooling down from a blank run … What to do with this piece?  Bowl, vase/pendant lamp or spoon rest?  Hmmm …

My bottle bowl experiment is done.  I like it, but not well enough to offer up to the shops.  It’ll sit in my studio to inspire other ideas … or catch dust.  Whatever … Winking smile

Meanwhile, DH, my camera and ‘nature’ are trying to help my mood, too.  DH has placed my hot tub (the one from the front yard!) onto the studio deck and is finishing up the railing …

And … Check this out.  We have what I call Brown Flamingos (ok, so they’re actually Sand Hill Cranes) who’ve adopted us this spring.  I zoomed in with my new camera (AMAZING ZOOM) and look … they have a baby!

I plan to play in the studio until it’s time to create in the kitchen (make dinner).  Time for an army supply of comfort food!

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
