Productive … and Leery

So far it’s been a good week in the studio.  I finally have all 25 spoon rests completed!  Yep, 19 one-of-a-kind colorful and 6 repeat designs (flowers) … So, now I need to photograph, aargh – my favorite!  [Ummm, here are the first 9 red OOAK colors …]


We’re also playing … Busted out the airbrush.  After a rocky start, I kind of love it!

And we’re at stage 3 for dichro cabs.  Just one (or two) more firings! (Photos to come)

Oh, and night lights … owls, rainbows and more.  Add to all the flight-of-ideas madness, and we have a couple Sponge Bob trials … cuz I can.

And, finally a bowl project moving along … very close to completion!

All while watching that crazy new (full} moon get bigger.  All I can say is this:  I can’t IMAGINE this coming weekend getting any nuttier than the last … but I’m sure the universe (and my COUNTY) will prove me wrong.  Hang on folks, it’s gonna be a bumpy ride …

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

    Love what you are doing. Curious as to what air brush equipment you are using and the enamel brand.

      Thanks! Enamels – I have a small collection of different brands … The first four are Fuse Master. Jabba is Sunshine and Barry Kaiser’s enamels (not airbrushed though). The equipment is a TCP Global kit, about $100 on ebay …
