This week in the studio …

So, my flower plate ERUPTED too … Dang it!


But, I have a plan for this plate and the failed peacock piece … [drumroll] … spoon rests!!!  Winking smile  To go with the other spoon rests I’ll be cutting from these blanks and future bowls …


My plate/platter slump run went well.  I like this ‘patch work’ platter.  And, I finally got around to weave slumping those sticks from … 6+ months ago.  I’ll need to do some grinding before it will actually fit together, but – you get the idea.

I’m kicking around the idea of doing a fall art show.  We’ll see.  (I meet with the surgeon (again) this week, along with my primary) … So, in the meantime, I’m stocking up on ornaments.


Now, it’s time to open up a bottle (or two) of wine and get those darn (computer) work competencies done!

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
