Been Doing Lots


First of all I want to show you the coolest rock! You can see it there in the center it holds water...for the birds but
it also looks like door turned the other way and i might put it that way...not sure yet, i found it walking through the trees looking for antlers.


Here I am setting up to stain glass for a birth announcement box.
Everything is ready.
Palette for grinding the glass and mixing up the stain
and glass substrate to make my marks.










Here the feet are applied and ready to fire in the kiln.









This is the piece I prepared to place the feet over to fuse to creating the desired ordered border...ladybugs.










Here is the finished top. a few bubbles appeared but they are kinda cute so i am thinking this is a keeper. Next i make the box part.

I really, really want to come play in your studio, Mar. I love how you set things up and the care you take to document the process. I only wish I knew 1/100th as much about glass as you. I'm always impressed with your glass art.

Hi, Mar! I love the cool rock you found! The photos of the glass process are great! I like seeing all the frit and stuff ... with the big arch window in progress behind it! And thank you for the super sweet shout-out, too! :-)
