Winning some & losing some …

fragile-betty-boopBut playing in the studio with glass powders.  While wearing a niosh-approved face mask.  While sick.  And still very-much claustrophobic.  Moving on … Step one has some potential successes …. I lost/killed another Betty Boop – this time too hot and too fragile (fine detail). 

But I like Evil Queen, Grumpy Cat, Mr. Grinch and Michelangelo:


Once I ripped that mask off, had a healing shot of cranberry (vodka) and finished coughing up portions of lung … I started arranging my bits of frit wafers.  Now to see how they fair when facing the Kiln Gods … [Du Du Dumm]

I’m feeling so good, I’ll be making chicken soup tomorrow … Winking smile

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
