I have spent a long and happy day yesterday working in my studio. It is such a mess but I did sweep the floor!!! However I have accomplished a small amount and the kiln has cooled nearly so I will unpack that this afternoon.


The wooden mounts are ready for their little bitty boats and one of the areas that I enjoy are adding all the finishing touches to their personalities.
My daughter who in her younger days used to collect strange things (wonder where she gets that from!) has kindly given me a full jar of rusty bottle tops to use for the vessels so I’m in luck as otherwise I would be scouring the sides of the road!!!!! She feels that she won’t find a use for them herself. Her loss my gain.
Also I was given this beautiful piece of wire from a friend which I am trying to keep as it is, so my mind has started picturing it in its finished piece already.
