If I'm not visible for a few days, it is because of snow. Because we live way back in the woods, we have a satellite dish for internet, which is fine....but as soon as there is 1/4" of snow on it, we lose service. Good thing we live where there isn't much snow. Seems they should have a little heater in there that kept it just warm enough to keep the snow off.
The snow and predicted cold (teens Friday and Saturday) made us postpone the anagama kiln firing for two weeks. Just not worth the risk with dozens of people trying to make it out here on bad back roads. And I can't imagine getting snowed in with 20-30 people!
Another new piece below is fashioned on the framework that would hold a wooden sewing machine drawer on an old cabinet treadle sewing machine. The "flying buttresses" are actually plastic bridge pieces from some child's toy, while the little stained glass piece under the top finial is part of a very 1960's stained glass hanging lamp that I disassembled.
Yesteday I finally figured out how to finish up the piece that had the vintage French doll eye on it (I'd have to look back to see which post that was). Utilizing an image of a vintage nude and an old document disfigured by my burning much of it away, I'm finally happy with it. Will post that soon.
Drawing for free assemblage "stuff" coming on March 1! Post a comment to be entered
