Possibilities …

possibilitiesHave spent a good amount of time learning the ins-and-outs of CorelDRAW, vectors, masks, more advanced photo-manipulation, filters … ‘til I thought my head might spin.  But it’s all good.  It’s ruminating around in there and I’ll eventually figure it all out.

Here’s a lil picture I was playing with last night … IF I can master it AND figure out the best process for screen printing – I may end up with something fabulous.  But in the meantime – I think it’s kinda neat:

The kilns have been running and I’ve been taking photos (when my head feels like mush from tutorials and manuals).  I even hope to get the coffin-kiln loaded later tonight.  But here are my cabs – fire polished and ready to assemble into … whatever.

And, I’ve played a bit with the plotter.  Made a decal for DH’s car – he loves it.  This is the test piece – to see how well I’ve learned.  So far, it’s holding up well – and hasn’t fallen off of the Envoy … YET … ?!?

Still more learning to get through with the plotter, as I fine tune the cutting techniques for more detail in smaller images … Yep – baby steps and POSSIBILITIES …

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
