October Moon


October has to have the prettiest moon! It is always HUGE and I love its color!!!


I was helping Craig in the shop and I looked over and saw the moon rising and ran in for the camera...I haven't thought until just now, I would really like it just clearing the landscape..so while it is still full tonight, I will go and get that.

FINALLY! arrived the palette of glass i ordered I can't remember when now...


I un-crated it yesterday and what gorgeous sheets of glass!!! 
I researched and ordered glass to reproduce a Tiffany shade called Magnolia...this was a reallY REALLY HUGE shade in the day...well anyday...I will have to measure the mold..but it is like 50 inches...would make an outstanding entryway chandelier!

The one I will produce will be but 22 inches...
Here is the museum image I found to research by...

It is a very pretty shade...Custom order...and the lady wanted it as close to the original as possible, except for the original size.

The class I wrote for the group of children (learning about color through the color wheel) fell through, so I will be working on lampshades...
I also have a small Butterfly shade to do
and I have yet to complete the Dragonfly shade...

so I brought back in to the gallery workroom all those dangerous things like glass...to get producing, since I never seem to get to that once I get home.

Ya getting ready for the ghouls and goblins?
