Interesting …

A pre-fire/post-fire comparison:  Of course, I could try to play off the changes, like some post-diagnostic STD slides … But, no – I tried to follow guide-lines.  My layers were not so thick that they caused cracking … Apparently, FM-HF peach, yellow and red get some deep level V-D ‘spots’ … Who knew?!?  I’m glad I only fired the one – as the ‘test’ piece …

RE---prefire-postfire

Because, NOW I have the ‘mandala-ALA-MANIA’ to fire … yep, a few issues with line-thickness there … But – maybe … throw in some abnormal-like STD spots, accept a certain level of bipolar-ness … and I have a master piece!?!

Either way – I head back to work today … so, dinner will be a chicken/mushroom version of this recipe  – minus broccoli (allergy) + mushrooms (DH loves them!) …

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
