I’ve done it now …

Nothing to do, but … Um, actually there’s lots to do!  I’ll keep you updated as we bump along on this exciting ride of ‘boutique artisan’ partner … And, I’ll let you know what my friendly tax accountant has to say about my latest shenanigans.  But, for now … Holy cow, just … Wow!

DH is being helpful and supportive.  We needed to add some display furniture, so he’s been traveling about lower Michigan all week picking up cabinets, shelving and armoires (oh my!) – gotta love craiglist!  And thanks to our youngest son, who lent some heavy-lifting/labor support … those items are now in the shop!  Here are some early photos.  Still lots to be done, but it’s moving full-steam ahead.  The plan is for an April opening … (Just – wow!!!)

So, back in the studio, I have a bit of work going: A new size/shape to the night lights are making their way out of the kiln in small batches (along with my sand dollar ‘bowl’).  The focal/image hot cabs are moving forward.  I’m prepping a few new molds for upcoming pieces, and I’m working through some design ideas that will incorporate Zen symbols and verre églomisé techniques  (à la P.Pettigrew-Stewart style/teaching) … in between some custom orders (no photo).

Next up – squishy face puppy pics.  And, we absolutely must start the tax prep.  I mean it this time, no more slacking! Winking smile
