Here and There...

So much going on... 


I took the pictures of the kiln to post at the Beads-of-Clay Yahoo group, but decided I would first put it here.   Check the group out.  Here's some quick links to the blog and the website :O)

Here is what I came home to today after my day job ;o) That's after I got my dogs all settled in after their intitial excitement from seeing me. I was ALMOST as excited as they were when I opened the kiln. I, however, managed to stay on my feet and I didn't plow over any furniture with my surprise! Here is something to ponder.....

'LIVE EACH DAY BEING THE PERSON THAT YOUR DOG THINKS YOU ARE'


I'm not sure who came up with that quote, but I can say that I've never forgotten it
since the first day I came across it.




Woof!

Love them! And I love how you show us the process -- I never knew how they looked in the "middle man" process!

Beautiful surprise to come home too. I love opening a kiln. No matter how many times you use the same techniques, there is always something exciting in there.

Great pics of inside of your kiln. I agree it is the best and most exciting part of making ceramic beads.

Love the before and after picts MaryAnn! I've never played with fire or with a kiln, so I'm living vicariously through your photo tour. It amazes me how the beads look before locking them up in your bead sauna! Very cool to see!

Hope you have a terrific weekend my dear! You sure made some lovelies there!
