Murrini, Funshine & Pups

I used some of our 96 murrini to make a couple of pendants.  They’re cute (!) and they proved to me they are fire-safe/stable.  So – check for cane listings in our shop and on our FB page!  And, it’s that time… Read More

We did some pulls …

Our first vitrigraph pull of the night … coe96 turquoise: We got some gorgeous cane/murrini.  But – we had a crazy amount left-over in the vit pot … I mean like 1.5-2 inches.  Since I knew I wanted to do another pull,… Read More

Glass Expo is this week.  Nope, I still can’t go.  Dangit!  So – I’m staying busy … It’s been several weeks in the making, but I wanted to make some ‘cloud tiles’ … So, I did.  And, tonight I cut those beauties… Read More

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!). And, I’m still making component parts for future tiles/jewelry: I… Read More

Studio update 2/24

We had our fourth vit pull last week.  I’m gaining some skills with ‘the stack’ and manipulating the temperatures … I’m hoping to try for some black/white/gray murrine next, maybe later today. We are building a decent collection of cane ‘flower bouquets’ …… Read More
