Time Flies When You're Having Fun (?)

Wow!  Has it been a week already since my last blog post?  By this time I had planned to have a blog post all written about the new Fast Fire BronzClay I received, but I haven't even opened the package yet.  I'm itching to, but I have been busy... Mostly I've been busy being sick with a nasty non-strep throat infection.  Thanks to the medication that keeps my autoimmune disease from attacking my body, other organisms can sneak in and wreak havoc.  I'd like to say I've lost weight because eating anything felt like swallowing razor blades, but I'm sure the high calorie ice creams I managed to choke down made up for any calories I might have lost.

But I've tried to keep busy.  I have been accepted to a gallery in Portland for which I am making new pieces and a show this weekend as well (Saturday: Winter Harbor Lobster Festival).  I am working on pieces and displays for that.  I have been able to procure some more louvered closet doors (cheap!) and I'm expanding the upright displays I first tried in Belfast.  I'll post photos once I'm done.

In the meantime, a sneak peak at what I'm putting in the kiln.




And what has been out of the kiln and is in various stages of finishing.


And don't forget to check out the first ever giveaway by the Metal Clay Heads going on right now!  It's going to be awesome!

  1. Is that long silver piece going to be a barrette? I think I've got to have it!

    And I love, love, love the maple leaf getting ready to go in the kiln!

  2. Wicked prolific! All I have to show for my weekend of clay making is a lentil with a cloudy stone, a pair of earrings and a double sided pendant.
