Holidays...the countdown begins!

Perhaps many of you know, I purchased my own kiln this fall! Now I don't need to rent kiln time from other local artist. Of course, along with the new kiln came a new line of glass which is a better fusing product. This has meant a HUGE learning curve. However, this does mean that I have been playing with my kiln & new glass....We love playtime...don't we crafty people! Lately, I have been doing screen melts. This is where you take broken pieces of glass, melt it at a high temperature so that it drips through a stainless screen and swirls together to form a new piece of glass. So fun!

In the process of doing these I managed to melt some glass into the floor of my kiln...Ahhhhh!
So now I have had a DIY lesson in kiln floor repair as well...LOL!
