I'm an Artist

Happy Monday to ya! So.. I tried to be consistent with my blog. Write every Tuesday and Thursday, make it interesting etc.. but... I'm an artist.. I live on a whim and I'm only usually interested in what I am doing Now. I like to flow in whats going on in the moment... So I guess my blog will have to be just like me... kinda scattered but fun!! He He! Just random notes from my life...

Female Glass Scuba Diver Ornament by Wendy Williams.. 2011

Today is such a gorgeous day!! The sun and warmth decided to grace this day!! Which is awesome cause I have lots of work to do today in the studio. I am still in the process of making these little female scuba diver ornaments and submitting them to a jury panel for selection in a wholesale order... I have three more to make and send.. Wish me luck!! I think I would like doing this.. It's absolute hard work but at the end of the day I get paid!! Woo Hoo!! I like that!! On an average I work between 50-70hrs a week.. and sometimes with no pay. I absolutely LOve what I do and would not trade it for anything,, well,, maybe to work with animals.. But.. I'm just saying.. it's good to get paid!

I have a couple of custom orders to figure out as well... one will be sculptural flames!! I like that idea!! and the other remembrance beads.. Not sure how to do this one or even if I can.. I have lots of research ahead of me.. it involves "Imploding" a mothers ashes into the center of a frit glass cabochon. I'll let you know what I find out.. if it can be done and what it might possibly look like.. I think ash.. like say.. from a volcano, turns grey-green when incorporated into hot glass... I want to be sure of what will happen before I take this commission on cause I want to be very careful with something so dear to the clients heart.

Anyway.... that's my day so far!!

Happy Monday to ya!!!
