Christmas comes early

There is such an element of surprise to kiln fired art, I love getting up early and opening the kiln, it’s a bit like Christmas morning every morning; more in a moment.

Well it’s June and I know  I haven’t been good lately keeping up with ‘technique a week’  I have been so busy keeping up to date with orders.  I must try to do better ! I haven’t any time for step by steps but I though you might like to see some new pendants I’m making for Dichroic Glass online shop.

So the first thing I do when I come downstairs in the morning is open my kiln, dichroic glass looks like a magpie’s nest, when I opened the door I was greeted with with these beauties.

These are for my new Harlequin  range of pendants. The last batch sold before I got them onto the website.

Here’s a closeup, they now need finishing off, boxing and photographing, then I can upload to my shop, this all takes time.

So what else have I done today ………….I’ve been sanding greenware. I hate thinking of Christmas before the beginning of December but as I’ve loads of Christmas tree ornaments to make for the Dickensian market I thought it would be best to start early. I had a bit of clay left over from some jewellery and vessels that are works in progress, so thought I’d make some tree decorations. Come back and see how they fire. Once I have enough to fill the kiln.Then they will need glazing, refiring then decorating, it’s a lot of work for a tree decoration but they are handmade exclusives LOL!
