Picture Frame Almost Done!

Ok, watching glue dry is a waste of time!

   That said, this glue is taking it's sweet time. 

Step 1: Cut the glass, measure, re-measure, measure again!

Step 2: Decorate with glass design elements

Step 3: Fuse the glass

Step 4: Glue museum glass to the frame- wait for it to dry!

Step 5: Place photo into the slot, tape on cardboard backing.

Step 6: Glue supports to yellow board- 

Step 7: Glue frame to supports and.........

                                         ....wait for it to dry!

The customer asked for something wild.... I hope this is what they meant!

I will post the final project once it has been delivered to the customer.

New Temporary Digs!

One of My Kilns...camping on the back deck
Trenches have been dug for the foundation and concrete should be poured sometime this week.
Meanwhile, our bedroom and bathroom have been completely emptied out and our new temporary bedroom is in the dining room. The kiln will move to its new digs long before I will!

Just a Big Empty Hole Now

The last of the shed has been hauled away. In another week or so, concrete trucks will come to pour a pad....the floor of my future kiln room. My wonderful contractor hooked me up with some temporary power on my lower tomorrow I will connect one of my kilns (ok, maybe both)....and I'll be fusing again!
I feel positively giddy!
