Oops – I’m doing it again …

I apparently can’t help it and I don’t THINK there’s a med for it …  I’m scoping out a new hobby and chomping at the bit!  Since DH has put a temporary kibosh on the ‘L’ addition to the studio (so – no room for a potter’s wheel yet!) … I’ve found something interesting that’ll fit in my current space.  I’m still in the research phase, as the ‘package’ I’m eyeing is definitely equal to a house payment.  But, you know, I’m obsessed now – so it’s just a matter of time … [evil chuckle]

Moving on … Since I’m feeling guilty about neglecting my glass, I was productive in the studio last night.  Got all three kilns running (oh, I love that), some listings pulled together for the shops, and ideas are churning for my next project … Here are some pics – Coffin loaded with my latest trial of special, bling slumped bottles:

Finally have the cab load running for the final fire-polish; And the production kiln is loaded with spoon-rest blanks.  (I’m hoping this is the last run on these two before slumping – but we’ll see what happens when I open the lid …)

And, I finally listed the Earth Platter to the shops … She’s a big one, 15 inches with a neat organic feel.  I like it!!


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
