With piles of beads yet to glaze, thought I'd stop and give you a glimpse into this morning's kiln opening. Obviously, it was a red and vanilla run. :) LOVE this deep red.
The little bowl is a gift for my sister Sue, who helps me SO much!
A good friend of mine, and talented artist, Jaretta, recently suggested I make bowls in which to fire my bisque beads. That way, there was not SO much time spent scraping the beads out of the bottom of the kiln after the bisque firing. It worked GREAT! But this bowl just begged to be glazed, and I think my sis will like it. She's a red fan, too.
Just started making bead caps... love how these turned out!
And as a side note, to promote our headpin Boot Camp, I just received these in the mail today, and HAD to share. While following the blogs, I found some beautiful headpins, that called my name!! Thank you Marsha for posting them. I just LOVE the vibrant colors!!
