Nothing like a blog for making you feel you aren't keeping up! I'd like to say I've been sitting on the sofa with a good book, but that'd be a lie (well, for a lot of the time).
So, let's try 'little steps'. A few words here and there. With a theme, one I've mentioned before. My 52 things in 52 weeks challenge on the Craft Pimp forum. I think alot are falling by the wayside but I'll keep trying......
So, as Horace (Roman poet, I think) said, 'and to make an end is to make a beginning, the end is where we start from'
So, starting with the end, this is my last 52 in 52 make, I think we are up to week 29 now - I have a client (OK, husband - but he is paying) who teaches Heart Rhythm Meditation and wanted gifts for his meditation retreatants and for his hosts when he is in the USA in a few weeks. He asked for a heart and wings design, so I created these (go me, I drew something, my art teacher would be so impressed), made stencils and then powder printed onto plain coasters.
These are a multi-stage process. First the 2 layer coaster has to be made, then the glass powder stencilled on, once for the blue ones, in 2 stages for the red and yellow and each has a firing after printing. Another satisfied customer :)
If you'd like to see my other 52 in 52 makes - they're in a Flickr folder, do have a look. I also have lots more photos of current work in my Pinterest boards - look for the current month's board as well as boards for jewellery, fused glass etc
