Upcycled Pendant

I worked for a glass designer and would take the broken vases, bowls and a host of other pieces that were going to be thrown away, not thinking of what I was going to do with them at the time.

Everything was too pretty to be thrown out. What glass artist throws out glass? I don't know of any. do you?

Dining Room Window

Dining Room Window, originally uploaded by AfricanSand.

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.

My Studio

Studio 4, originally uploaded by AfricanSand.

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.

November Already?

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.
