So it took another two weeks after my last post to really get working on my prototype. The end result should be a block of glass thick enough to stand on edge with a multi-depth garden scene inside. Of course cooling a piece that thick takes 40 hours!!! After the 7 hours to fuse it!!! So I put the piece in the kiln last night and can't take it out until tomorrow. Patience is not one of my best virtues but I have finally learned my lesson, if I crack the kiln open I may crack the piece.
I'll post a picture here tomorrow night.
In the meantime I have applications out for my summer shows... again, I need patience. We have been accepted into 2 shows and we are waiting to hear from 2 more, with 5 more left to apply for. Yes folks, I'm an application procrastinator. My calender reminds me to apply a few days before the app is due. At least I have my trusty calendar!
Ok, enough random thoughts for the night.
