It’s time …

For our next coe96 glass murrini cane offerings …. We did a gorgeous ‘scallion’ pull:   And. here is our first coe96 medley package, available in our Etsy shop: It’s getting to be that time of year.  The studio is becoming ‘Ornament Central’ as I prep for Christmas and our next show: Alas – it’s …

Street Legal

Got through the online nursing competency bit AND the day-walking blitz competency … So, yeah!  I’m street-legal with my employer for another year.  Yay!!! Back in the studio … I’m taking inventory in slow preparation for Arts & Greens 2017, deciding which projects, ornaments and techniques to try.  And cutting up vitrigraph stacks, as we …

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, we crash cooled the pot in cold water.  It made a BEAUTIFUL ‘hunk’ …

Amazing!

I got a wee bit side-tracked today.  My new phone arrived – and I had some learning to do.  Samsung Galaxy S8+ … Oh My Goodness … I love it!  I’ve been taking pictures, pictures – and more pictures!  What an awesome phone camera!!!  Little to no photo-editing to correct colors or lighting needed … …

Clean Studio = Tired, But HAPPY!

Spent a couple of days this week cleaning up/organizing my haven, uhh STUDIO!  Good golly, it’s been a while.  But she’s all back together – I can find stuff, AND I have open spaces to work!  What a cool idea!!! DH and I had our pink cane pull.  While it didn’t do what I thought …

Fingers Crossed …

My back is on fire, but I have three kilns running, jewelry tiles cooking and a new product line just about ready to go … Fingers crossed that my kilns behave! My studio is a disaster, but – ya know … I was CREATING!  It’s all good.  Here’s what I’ve got: Our next couple of …

More Reverse Enamel Trials …

The good news – I have my bubble squeeze program down pat!  Here are my latest spoon rests fired with white luminescent backing.  The bad news – I’m still having issues with color burn out, even while adding more venting … So, I’m trying a different enamel.  Nothing like diving in, so here are more …

Good, Fat & Happy!

A good appointment with our tax man means CHS gets to keep making cool stuff!  [Well, yeah, sure – AFTER a weekend of ER nursing fun!] Our pups are growing by the minute!  Momma Xena is eating like a champ and her fat ‘lil piglets will be opening their eyes soon! So, I’m happy!  Had …

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 have a few ‘themed’ tiles in the works … rusty brown, ocean marina …

Pendant-Making-Friday …

Well, because I can!  I’ve been fiddling with these all week.  While making more components and parts …   DH seems to think I should make some type of ‘ocean scene’ … Hmmm But, I’m being nice as the poor guy turns the big 5-0 on Sunday!  Good golly someone is getting old!  The twins …
