Oh Snap!

Who shot the peacock?!?  Dammitall! 


Turns out, IF you read the actual CPI tutorial for the plate, there is a small, significant tip regarding firing:  “If the posts are too far under the tile, they will cause uneven heat to that area. Elevating the mold helps to heat the glass more evenly and helps to eliminate eruptions during the firing process.”  I love learning lessons the hard way …

Moving on:  I have the coffin loaded for slumping.  And, I’m just about ready to try this peony platter.  Here’s hoping the kiln-gods are happy with the sacrificial peacock offering … My wall of shame is getting too crowded!

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
