This is my dining room window and where I spend most of my time when I'm not playing with glass.
The cactus in the middle belonged to my mother and is about 40 years old. It seemed to sense that the ceiling was there and stopped growing up. Now its filling out.

This is a small section of my creative space. I love it so much because its not shared with anyone. Everything is still in the same place when I go back to it. Just lovely. View a few more pictures of my studio on flickr.

I just got my Delphi Stained Glass Supply catalog in the mail. They are starting to not only deal with items for the glass artists but for the ceramic artist too. I always have to fight to stay focused when I get this catalog because it makes me want to try mostly everything in the book.
Their website is user friendly so check it out when you have some time.
It doesn't seem like this year is almost over. I'm still wanting some more warm weather. Unless I move to a warmer climate, that's not happening. That doesnt mean that I'm not enjoying the colors that this season brings, because I am. I'm just not looking forward to the bulky clothes and all that it takes to feel comfortable outside. I'll miss you, warm weather.

One of my items was featured in another Treasury. This one was made by nomadcraftsetc from items found on Flickr.
Take a visit to her shop to see the various pieces they have to offer. I especially like the glass jars and vases but they also have jewelry, lampwork beads, and marbles. There's more to see. I just listed my favorites.

The fun thing about the Absolut bottles is that the vodka comes in flavors so no two bottles are alike. Also, I love script text and the glass is frosted. As you can see in one of my earlier posts, I have quite a few bottles to work with, thanks to someone I know who loves this drink.

When I make these, I break the bottle with a hammer and use the most interesting pieces. I have to cut the matching earring but other than that, the way the glass breaks is the shape its going to be. More to come soon.

Ever since I made the Corona bottle earrings, I've been thinking about incorporating bottles in my work. Its still glass, just with a slight curve to it, which is a challenge when it comes to foiling. From the look of all those bottles, I'll have enough glass to use for lots of pendants and earrings.

Looks like a lot of computer work will be done today. I don't trust myself with a soldering iron.

We had lost contact until this past summer when we were working the farmers' market. She looked through the sample book and decided on this design. The original one was only 12" x 12". She wanted it to fit in the window frame which measured 38" x 23". Not impossible. I love a challenge and I got it.
If you would like to see the process (excluding the making of the pattern and cutting the glass) then click on the picture.

I took several shots but this one turned out to be the best.
