Ahhh … Friday

Brings about the end of another week … but a good week.  A few things from the studio:  New slumped bottle, “Cocktail”; more boiled blanks – I’m still working out the tweaks, but I like them, while slowly building up to a load (for the coffin) of [eventual] bowls and what not; and I tried my hand at silicone mold making … Hmm, I wonder if it will work as I hope?

Did a coffin-load of bottle slumping.  I was excited about this – a red Raspberry Absolut bottle.  It didn’t appear to be ‘coated’, so I had hopes it would stay red after slumping … Oops – NO JOY!  And – most of the white enamel (lettering) burned off too.  Bummer!  The rest of my bottles faired well, though.

As a special Friday surprise – I was honored with a feature on a fellow crafter’s site:  Krafty Max Originals … Thanks KM!  And so – to round out our Friday (and Lent, I suppose, although we’re Baptist) – we’ll be having Fish Fry for dinner, thanks to our local Catholic church.  Yum!

An evening with the twins, pooches and DH before we roll into the weekend … Smile

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
