Clayton Hill Studio

Tag: art show

Thank You!

Thanks to Bogie Lake Greenhouse, HVCA, our shoppers and my family for a great show this weekend!  We had a wonderful turnout, and true to ‘Arts N Greens’ tradition – some crazy Michigan weather just for the occasion! Our 2016 Clayton Hill… Read More

With Mama in her kerchief, and I in my cap …

Yep, we’re loaded and ready to go.  So, sure – I’ve got two kilns running with ‘last minute’ glass … DH spent the day loading our trailer, checkin’ the tires and telling me to quit ‘making stuff’!  (Umm … Never!!!)  But, look… Read More

T-3 … still moving!

And feeling good.  Just waiting for my coffin load to cool to the point of touching … (145 degrees right now).  They didn’t all work out, but … I can work with this. In the meantime, we have a handful of cabochons… Read More

Harvest Fest, Blood Moon and Puppies …

We were at Harvest Fest in Brighton this Saturday.  A great day – with beautiful weather, lots of folks and too little sleep for me. (Note the frumpy, less-than-welcoming, pained look on the face of ‘the artist’ in the corner … oops!) … Read More

Countdown …

Work in the studio continues, with the understanding that I will not come anywhere close to touching the projects I wanted to try/complete.  That’s ok … I’ll still make myself nutty for this up-coming show, but maybe not ‘top-shelf nutty’… (???)  Here’s… Read More

Never enough hours – and yet …

I’m relieved all the same.  I make myself nutty with these craft/art shows.  I know I do.  “They” say identifying the problem is half the battle.  It’s not true … I’m still nutty!  (But I knew that going in, so …) We’re… Read More

It’s a good thing I’m not panicking …

DH signed us up to participate in Brighton’s Harvest Fest (market/art and craft show) … umm – this SATURDAY. (8am-3pm 9/27/14)  So, it’s a good thing I’m not stressing out, experiencing any sort of insomnia spike while I systematically search the internet… Read More

Some good, some bad … But – the 3rd time’s the charm!

The GOOD:  I’ve been producing in the studio; I have a few leads for ‘show-casing’ my ART;  I’ve been working on some glass special requests (… I absolutely love those!);  My family (both 2- and 4-legged) are healthy and well; I finally… Read More

I did say crazy – Right?!?

Oh, yeah – you betcha!  But, I almost have the coffin kiln loaded with ornaments and ready to run.  Look at what I made tonight … It’s ‘Ornament Central’ up in here … Why?  I dunno …but I like it!  The days… Read More

This week in the studio …

So, my flower plate ERUPTED too … Dang it! But, I have a plan for this plate and the failed peacock piece … [drumroll] … spoon rests!!!    To go with the other spoon rests I’ll be cutting from these blanks and future… Read More
