A few nights of studio playtime

Had a custom request conversation that has me playing in the studio.  First to make a large ‘hot cab’ and then to add a decal/screen printing area within … So, while it’s not in the requested colors – the first trial is… Read More

Ginger got her glass on …

Cheesy, I know … But – I’m happy!  I have all three kilns ROCKIN’ (Hummmm … Click … CLACK!!!)!  I’m getting some custom items moving along … [Plus – a few future badge reels I’d like to dedicate to all ‘Nurses who… Read More

So, it must be that time of year …

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
