Well I have been so busy catching up with work that I have forgotten to post anything. But I am trying some new color combinations in the glass, more neutrals and metallics than actual color. It is always interesting to try new things. Tomorrow morning opening up the kiln to see what turned out will be interesting. Sometimes it is a good surprise, and sometimes a bad one. Hate those bad ones. That is the downside of trying new things! It can waste time.
I went to an afternoon party yesterday, and stayed longer than I should have. I wanted to get a kilnload of beads in, but alas, it was a fun party! So after dinner, I raced out to the studio, and focused intently to get a few in the kiln in time to make it to bed at my normal time. I can work until about 10:15 pm, and then I collapse. So last night I got a few beads done, and this morning it was GREAT! Woonderful surprises. I was working on getting intense reds in some of the glass, and it worked. That was a great morning!
Hopefully tomorrow will bring more great surprises with the neutrals and metallics! I am hoping to pair them with pearls.
