That’s better!

Feelin’ a bit more like me, and the Motrin is actually helping today … so I had a great day in the studio!  I’ve been spending a lot of time learning Vitri-Fusaille (Peter McGrain) along with all other painting on stained glass techniques (Thank you, Williams and Byrne!).  Look what I have to show off … 

Here are my first tiles … Pansy in the Summer  (Yeah, there’s a sun motif and that’s not popcorn – or a colon! – in the blue area, it’s supposed to be fluffy clouds); … Flying Pig (Breaks the Chains??? – I was trying to stay away from the popcorn/colon look!); … and Mighty Zeus (don’t be critical – there is a likeness to the real guy!)… I know, I was supposed to start with simple learning tiles, but – where’s the fun in that?

They’re in the kiln now, and still have two more layers to add – for additional shading … which means two more steps to mess them up, but … I’m optimistic [fingers crossed!!]!

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
