So – the funny thing is …

no-oxygenIt turns out, you can’t play with your torch if your OXYGEN tank is empty … Nope!  Doesn’t matter how much of that glass glob you place into your ‘hottest flame’ … This is what you get … And now, I am waiting on my (new) O2 tank arrival(!);  Meanwhile murrini is on hold!!!

But – I love me a new saw blade!  Yep, the new Taurus 3 blade is slicing through tiles like butter!  Arrgghh – if I ever win the LOTTO … !!!!

It took me a while, but I eventually had 29 cabs laid out … I have 19 cut & shaped tonight.  I’ll have one heck of a kiln load for ‘fire-polishing’ SOON!


Meanwhile – DH and I are getting accustomed to Alexa.  I have the ‘Dot’ out here in the studio.  It’s neat and all, but … I’m not sure how I feel knowing some ‘smart-thing’ is listening to me ALL THE TIME … Like when I’m yelling at the glass for insubordination, or scolding my canine-kids for unauthorized accidents (poops)… ???


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
