We Did It!!!

We set our (4th) kiln up and had our first vitrigraph cane pull!  Yahoo!!! [So, yeah … it’s THAT kiln, the vitrigraph kiln … Which will forever be called ‘She Who Causes Broken Wing’ … I ❤ her!] We still have a… Read More

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

Still prepping …

With 3 days to go before our show, I’m still playing with new ideas.  I’ll get these in the kiln tonight, and should still have time to get everything slumped, packed and ready to roll.  [Famous last words???]  But, wow – I… Read More

The possibilities … Oh my!

The mad scientist … ???

Or the Mad Hatter … or just plain crazy.  Whatever …  The experiments continue!  I do love the day of the internet!  Much to the annoyance of DH (… and my accountant … and my bank account …).  Sooo much to learn! … Read More
