Old Mother Hubbard

Old mother hubbard, went to the cuboard, to fetch her poor dog a bead.....OK you get the idea... My cupboard is pretty bare right now, bead wise. But lest you think I've gone to the dark side and devoted myself to making pots, let me set you straight. I've spent the last couple of days making pendants, a few beads, glazing, and loading a kiln with lots of stuff. There are lentil beads in there. There are some of my old favourite pendants in there. There are barnacle pots in there. There are my favourite of all--experiments in there. It's a kitchen sink of stuff. And come Monday, you all should have a sampling of what's in there.


Meanwhile, this kiln 'god' is looking over things as the alchemy of firery magick happens. Made be my son, this looks a lot more like a gargoyle or devil to me. But who am I to argue. Maybe what you need is something fierce to gaurd your precious makings.
Have a fantastic weekend all!

Sharon, I think Mable is a fine gaurdian. I like Mable and how she came to be in your studio space.

Maire, I've got kids but they have both flown the coop. The kiln god was made when my son was about 16, about 10 years ago. Oh, how time flies.

Oye LeAnn,

That guy needs an orthodonist what an over bite, or is that an under bite I never now. You know it's like thermostats if you turn them up is that hotter or colder??? :)

Okay so you caught me trying to kill time till you open your magical, mysterious kiln and take a peek inside!! :)

Have a good weekend

I'm right here with everybody else and can't wait to see what comes out of your alchemist's laboratory. It will be gold, of course. Or porcelain.
Have a great weekend!

I could never do this! I have trouble letting things bake in the oven for the full time! I'm so impatient!
