Rocky starts, baby steps and moving forward …

Finally figured out (after three tries!) why my ‘crackle with image’ pieces were not working … DOH!  But, I think I have it now (kiln at 900 degrees – I just have to wait and see)!

So, while I wait, I’m working on custom hearts … lots of little bits!

WWU:  It was a full moon this past weekend – which means way too many dysfunctional folks wandering about! … ‘Nuff said!  I’m not talking about it any more!


DH is still down and out with his URI (… umm, his body is S.L.O.W.L.Y. destroying the DEATH STAR of cold viruses, according to him) … so I’m hiding in the studio as much as possible!

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
