Interesting, frustrating, painful … you decide

So, I’ve had 3 kilns running for the last few days.  My experiments were … interesting and frustrating, but have potential … maybe.  I also have a few other ideas to try.

And, I have some sweet dichro (jewelry) pieces almost ready for listing:

My ‘Christmas run’ is promising.  And, I’m cooking the slump run (for bowls and platters) now, so my fingers are still crossed.  My dichro slab has a lot of pink and one giant red spot!  Pink is not my favorite color, but … it can all be tweaked, so – ???

The twins have had a hard time recovering from their wisdom teeth extractions.  I think they’re on the mend, but … they’re still hurting.  (Which is painful to see.)

And, somewhere along the line it was decided that I would be acting charge nurse last night (WTH?!?) – in the midst of an S.R.O. ER – with a STEMI patient – and, every abdominal complaint you can think of – ALL night long!  Interesting, frustrating or painful … um, I’ll let you decide.

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
