News from the Studio

Extra Blue Hydrangea, Bom Blue Orchids and Lavender Roses in an 8 inch vase

There is never a dull moment around here. For the past month, I’ve been busy fusing, slumping and drilling sinks for my upcoming webinar and a how-to DVD. Both will be available in January 2015. The launch of my Signature Collection in October was a huge success. The original series is getting rave reviews. To meet the increasing production demands of the series and improve work flow, I brought in a new Revolution saw and a second, shiny Clam Shell kiln.
In addition to keeping up with production work, I’ve been playing around with test vases we hope will make distinctive centerpieces for our daughter’s October 2015 wedding reception. We’ve settled on the crystal-like all clear version. Jessie made her first test floral arrangements in them and I’m really impressed by her talent and their stunning beauty.

The Winners
And to top it off, its horse show season. This enthusiastic barn mom has spent several weekends dodging stinky road apples while toting a video camera, bottled water and a shoe shine towel around different show grounds. Niki and Rori are an amazing pair. They bring out the best in each other and have had increasing, well-deserved success in the show arenas.

Niki and Rori Bringing Home the Blue
Being Silly

There’s no moss growing under Joe’s feet. He has a new power tool / toy; a fancy table saw. I’ve benefited with arts and crafts style chair-rail molding in the kitchen and wood shelves in the glass studio.
The studio is calling and it’s time I got back to work. But before I go, I’d like to extend an invitation for you to visit my newly redesigned website for a peek at my Signature Collection plus information on exciting upcoming events, classes and webinars. 

More good stuff!
