Go Saints!

Wavy fused bowl in streaky black with dichroic stringers and amber fleur de lis accent

Amber clear with bejeweled confetti accents and fleur de lis streaky black center
As promised, a "Saints" themed bowl and platter for a Slidell non-profit fundraiser.  Sorry for the sub-par photo quality.

Expanding the Shop

Not only am I expanding the studio, I just received my new Evenheat GTS23-13 kiln!  I can now do large fusings and drapes.  My horizons have just expanded 10-fold.  I also wired it with a dedicated circuit so now more power failures.  Nothing worse that a tripped breaker right in the middle of annealing.  I just have to figure out how to move a 200 lb. kiln into place.....

Back to Work (again)

Indigo Blue Sys 96 Glass with Rainbow Leaves Dichroic Maple Leaves
The move is finally complete (although my studio is in chaos!) and I am back to work.  I just pulled this out of the kiln--a commission piece made with transparent indigo blue glass embellished with dichroic-rainbow-leaf patterned maple leaves.  I hope it captures the season as fall turns into winter.  Two more commission pieces are in the works so check back in a few days for all you Saints fans!
