Researching–so it’s been a while …

But, I do finally have some new glass to show off:   Etched, slumped bottles … I like them!


And, somewhere along the way, I got the crazy notion that I would like to love-on a miniature pig, so … I’m researching, have a couple of books coming and I’m scouring the ‘net.  How can you NOT love that face?!?  Lots to learn yet, but I have her name picked out if/when we find her:  Chloe … aww!

I managed a couple of pool days (Thank you, Michigan!), in between long slumbers (7-14 hours … I know, right?  My insomnia is taking a nap!  I love it!!!)  And, I ‘wrapped up’ a few more kumi bracelets.

Meanwhile, all four-legged loveys are doing well.  Our Neo pups are starting to play; and my Yorkie pups have graduated to their next nursery area (a multi-step process to eventually prepare them for walking amongst human feet) … Awww!!!

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
