Sunshine and Summer-Lovin’

Thank goodness for sunshine, pool-time and Summer!  I am officially over this past (nursing) weekend!  I’ve also played a bit in the studio:  Freeze-N-Fuse … It’s been 3+ years since I last fiddled with the technique.  Much better results this time around!  So, ya know … more ideas!


custom-badge-reelI’m also playing with my plotter, working up sun catchers and a custom (dichro) badge reel order.  Oh – and, I’ll be adding the FNF grapes … Cute!  Plus, I’m told Renaissance Festival is coming up … so, I’m working on a few fleur-de-lis penDot necklaces.

My latest sand dollars didn’t quite do what I want … The small one (left) needs more/different colors and the larger one (right) didn’t have enough ‘gap-age’  [totally a word!] … But, I have a dremel-press, so I can fix that – the hard way!  DOH!


Had a visitor in the studio this week.  My brother-in-laws 6 month old Bully came to visit.  Look at that mug … Adorable!


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
