In the Studio...What's New Today?
~Enjoyed a short walk in the woods late this afternoon, enjoyed seeing everything new and green!... and found lot's of burdock, violet, oakleaf hydrangea, and maple tree leaves to help finish off  24 stoneware 'leaf vases'. 
~Put last weeks batch of 'leaf vases' in the kiln to be bisque fired.
~Finally, the toad houses were ready for me to add the 
 friendly 'toad' that sits on the top to welcome new ones to your garden-this is my favorite part...when I finish it's friendly expression!
~This week, I've also been getting prepared for teaching my 1st Glass Bead Lampworking class that begins early this summer...reviewing my wonderful 'glass books' : They are 'EYE CANDY'... so colorful, beautiful and providing me with new inspiration for my class and my own work!
