I’ve had a glass kiln (Paragon DTC 1000) for about 5 years but haven’t done much besides fire polishing and creating the Kaleidoscope Tarot. Seemed like a small kiln for the time but now with PMC there are much smaller. I have been wanting to use it but that area of the garage had been buried under clutter for years. I’ve recently reclaimed it and am ready to go. I bought a couple of fusing groupons. Took the first one at Bullseye Glass this week. Here is my plate. We had brunch at the Funhouse on the way to pick it up.
I’ve been on a circular scarf knitting kick since the first of the year. When we go up to Mt Hood I get 5 hours of dedicated knitting time while Paul drives. I made the Mobieus Necklet 4 times. The burgundy one is the size the pattern calls for and the Silky Merino skein made two. I like double better and can wrap it twice.
The Hibiscus is the last drawing in the course. I’m not excited about it. I did it a year ago in the so you think you can’t draw but half the size. I am planning on completing it and scouting out some new reference photos to go forward.
Offices come and go. I haven’t had a door in six or seven years. I’m acting supervisor for the next couple of months. It may shake down into something more permanent. For the time being, I have a private office near the break room. No one is even in the cubes right out side. I brought in a bunch of art that I’ve worked on in the last year. Bought a two dock iHome, verilx and flower calendar and some cat office supplies. Almost as nice as my home office now.
