We met up with Janine and took a little hike up Haycock Mountain. We found a rock built for 5 and had a nice picnic. Then we decided that we needed to have a little fire and a little wine and MAKE SOME BEADS! Yep! We had a little smoke fire! Here's a shot of a bead that was inspired by another Artists photo of their work.
I love Dee Wilder's work! She goes by Malodora. She is one awesome polymer Artist!

Today I fired my kiln for the third time since I fixed it. The first 2 firings were to test my fix job and harden the new parts. The firing today was the first firing with my work in it. I will open it up in the morning and I really hope everything is working fine!
I have been a blur of activity lately. Fixing the kiln, planting early veggies, working on clay, working at my new job, and making room in our home for my Mother-in-law to move in in a few weeks and all of a sudden my husband is back to work every day. It's crazy around here, but it is crazy in an awakening growing kind of way.
I hope you all had a great weekend! Happy Spring!
