More aliens

Here's a few aliens from Friday. Going to fix oxygen leak and get to torching today if I feel better. My brother gave me an idea to make a beholder so I designed up a sketch for next time I torch. We ordered a blast shield last weekend and got it during the week and it is amazing!!! I'll take a picture of it on the torch soon. It makes such a difference for my face, not nearly as much heat which means no more "sunburns" and breathing in all the radiant heat :)

Group shot!

Andrea noticed there was a leak coming from the y connecter for the oxygen concentrators. Past few days I having a difficult time getting the colors I usually get and that explains why :) Here's a group shot of some of the aliens the past few days. I am ultra excited about the ones waiting inside the kiln! One of them is my first winged one!

Blob Aliens

I always seem to do something else than what I plan to do. I was going to make some garden stakes but in the back of my mind was an idea I had since Pipyr's class last fall (picture of what I made in her class) so I ended up experimenting a little.
The new ones are not as tall but the base is more cartoonish blob. I will post a picture tomorrow along with some pendants/beads on cords! I have so many ideas for these little guys :) Maybe a few will be making their way on etsy by this weekend.

I've been working on the website a bit and came up with a new layout.

It isn't completely done but I think it is a big improvement from previous layout already.

The farmer's markets have been going amazing for us so far! :) We sold a good amount of the focals/pendants on cords and hopefully get our new order of cords sometime early this week! It's fun to try to match our glass with cords. Sometime this week we will be working on some wooden displays for the markets since the cardboard ones are slowly falling apart. Also the cardboard ones don't do well in the wind and one of the markets is on a bridge in Nashua.

I have a few ideas for plant/garden stakes that I will be working on the next few days. I'll post pictures once they are out of the kiln, should be updating the blog more often again :) Also I am going to be working on some designs for a dreamcatcher.
