Oh it’s so good to be back in the studio and away from the computer at least for a couple days, and even though the tasks were more rote than creative. My studio time is as necessary as breathing and being out of it is like holding my breath, I get panicky if I go too long without it.
All the little projects in last week’s studio tour have been done and a glass order has been placed to make holiday trays and items for craft fair and holiday sales season.
Upcycled/recycled fused glass art trays painted on back with glass paint and baked to fuse. Now they can be displayed easily without visible hanging hardware or stands. Tiny little detail that makes a huge difference!
Repaired as best I could the broken ceramic statue and gave a lick of paint to the plastic ones. Repaired Msgr Bradley’s rosary beads (he prays very hard) and finally finished editing, captioning and printing out images from our MAY 2015 Priest Project Event at the Archidiocese of Newark. (I feel so guilty it took this long!) These pages will go into a book kept in our church Heritage Room that chronicles the our Restoration Workshop/Priest Project work. For more info go to:
The sculpture in the back right of the image got its drop of glue and is ready for delivery.
More bottle trays made, bottoms of tiny bowls ground, more glass items painted on the back and baked, a broken Murano glass tumbler melted to make into a dish or jewelry.
Studio time is over for now, drat. Time to photograph, process, box up, ship out, upload to Etsy. In between is a trip to Denver, to enjoy a wedding and see some art!
