Almost done!    This is in the kiln right now....about 40 leaves (I forgot to count!). I have stacked shelves hoping to save cost. Tomorrow I'll "toss" in the last 15 or so....
and then..... I get to pull out the fiber paper...."oh goody," she exclaimed (facetiously!) 

It's a tedious task. I've only cleaned out about 15 leaves so far. I can already feel my technique improving.

I look forward to going to the metal shop is such a play land! I'll ask if I can take pictures when I get there!

My Outdoor Studio!

What a glorious sunshine filled day! I can't work and take a selfie so  I thought I'd just show you what my outdoor workspace looks like today! I am sooooo fortunate to have this annex to my studio!

I'm scrubbing the edges of more leaves. I have many many many many more leaves to scrub...and then there is the rest of the process required to successfully fused them and get them ready for mounting on the metal sculpted tree of life.....

   Speaking of trees (of life)...I've had constant musical company in the trees and at the feeder all morning!

The leaves have begun!

The first batch of leaves is completed. A few adjustments and a double shelf will be made tomorrow....
