The Shop, Empty-Nesters and …

This year’s “When you can’t go to Glass Expo” experiments:  Playing with frits and temperature.  Here are tonight’s tiny tiles ready for the kiln, along with some fired pieces.



Meanwhile, DH and I spent a few hours at the shop, working on our displays.  It’s all coming together, and the boutique is full of so many great artists/products!  The official grand opening is April 9th – so mark your calendars …

And, as ‘empty-nesters’ (while the Twins are in Florida on Spring break) – it’s just us and the pups … and lots of squishy-faced love!  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
