Slight detour …

Spent the afternoon putting together a ‘lil scrapbook … all dye-sub style.  We have yet another Doc leaving us, and I needed to let her know she’ll be missed greatly!


Yesterday I was cruising along pretty well with putting together my mosaic load … a couple of rose plates:

mosaic-heart-plate-I    rose-mosaic-plate

And an iridescent patriotic night light … should be cute:

Had some disappointment with my latest jewelry load.  I’ve had a few capped pieces come out all cloudy like this … I’m bummed, as this was my latest etching-on-glass attempt.  I’ve been using Wissmach to cap, but I think I may remove it from my inventory.  Has anyone else had a problem with their thin clear streaking/clouding?

Anyway … hope to work a bit more in the studio tonight, but now I need to run up to the ER to catch my Doc during her last shift …

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

    Good to know … I’d hoped I was saving some pennies – as my thought was, ‘clear glass is clear glass’ … NOPE!
