Possessed …

But, you know, in a good way! 

Came upon a few inspiring images and caught ‘a fever’.  I’m working on a peacock platter, fused mosaic style.  Here’s the rough lay-out.  Now to decide on the mosaic border – clear irid, pale yellow irid or white iridescent glass … I’m leaning towards the white irid.

And – I stumbled on this image (yeah, that darn Pinterest, anyway!) … So have ordered the beads for my own spin on it … (DH, it wasn’t my fault, I HAD to!):

Lastly, this image … cement cast counter with embedded recycled glass.  I want a small, pub style table out on my studio deck, so I’m thinking I’ll try my hand at making this for the table top.  But, more research is required first (like how to do it!) … Winking smile

But, for now, the ER beckons … back to work I go!

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
