Worker Bee … that’s me!

This week, anyway … We did our first murrini slab.  Hmmm … next time I’ll make a round one for a kiln drop (imagine custom pendant-style light shades – for my studio!).

I have a few ‘themed’ tiles in the works … rusty brown, ocean marina and purple cow!

I prepped two vit stacks earlier this week – again working on color-scheme ideas.

And we pulled the beige stack … I like it! Smile

All while my coffin kiln is slumping night lights, tea dishes and spoon rests (- here is a quick look at 700 degrees and cooling) …

Next up – some quality kitchen time for a batch of potato soup!

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 www.chneos.etsy.com
