Pushing forward …

Mixed results in the studio today, but overall – I’m happy.  My irid platters are cooling in the kiln as I type … but that didn’t stop me from catching a quick peak/picture:

HaHa!!!  Much better … not perfect, but I like them!  And, I have a mini tray fire-polishing in the little kiln.  We’ll see.  I don’t like what I have going on with the dichro extract pieces – but it was a trial, so now I know.  And, I’m ‘setting’ a CZ in my failed-but-maybe-salvageable PNP cab.  It’s the first time I’ve played with them (CZ’s in glass), so we’ll see …


And, I’ve been playing with a potential screen print image.  I still have so much to learn with tracing bitmaps, color separation and all steps necessary for quality image creation, but – it’s learning so I’m on it.  Here’s what I’m shooting for … I hope to put it on glass later today.  [Fingers crossed!]


But for now, I think I’ve finally won (lost???) the battle with insomnia, since I’m rolling into my 31st hour of being awake.  Time to sleep DEEPLY! 

Lobster dinnerToday (Wednesday) is the twins’ last day of school.  So, we have a special dinner planned to celebrate … and then – it’s time to get this summer started!  (Garden and flower beds to tend, opening the pool, deep clean bedroom-detail, etc. –  oh so many fun summer chores and projects … HAHAHAHAHAAAAA!)

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
