Three kilns running, ideas flowing …

2015-05-0702.33.16_resizedPrep work done … AND surrounded by half of my ‘Dwarf Clan’ (the Yorkies … all seizure-free and healthy – Thank You Very Much!!!) … Here’s ‘Buubbby’ (Chauncey), with his much-loved/hoarded dental bone!  Callie, Nora and ‘Meems’ (Mimi) are sleeping [with one eye open] on the studio couch, watching over me (and the bone) while I work …

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
