I’ve been experimenting with some new glass, and oh my goodness, is it luscious! This is a premium glass which is made with silver…and almost everything I’ve made has come out with amazing vibrant colors and iridescent shimmers. It is delicious!
I’ve also been playing with ‘normal’ colors and having a lovely time making hearts!
And on the meeple-front, been trying new combinations of custom tinting, in all colors…I thought this would be great for wedding jewelry in particular! (please pardon the photo quality–these were fresh from the kiln and just cleaned, so sitting on a paper towel!)
And what else? … Travel/storage cases for my markers! These are now included with sets of 6 or 8, if that design will fit into the little compartments (some pieces are too large). Aren’t these cute!
And then, there’s a few announcements:
Due to other travel and family commitments, I have decided to not travel to Essen this year (2019), however, possibly, my friend will hand-carry orders, as she did last year. I’ll post an announcement here when that’s decided.
In the meanwhile…I will be in England in July, so for my friends across the pond, let me know if you want me to hand-carry over any glass for you. That will save you the crazy shipping from the US, plus avoid customs and import fees. Hooray! To sort out the postage from Surrey to elsewhere in the UK, please add a UK POSTAGE item to your cart ($5) and then use the ADDTOCURRENTORDER code to delete the $14 international shipping charge. When you check out, please write “hand carry to England” in the notes. [edit: I’ve adjusted the UK POSTAGE item to be for shipping within the UK or EU
anywhere in the world…see comments below] (If you are in the EU, send me a message and I’ll make up a EU Postage item for shipping to your country.) I’ll post from Surrey on July 3rd.
If you want meeple coasters or bowls, or other custom kiln-work, I can make them when I’m in England in July. I have activated these as pre-orders on my Etsy site and can ship them to non-US customers toward the end of July, and to US customers in early August.
Rahdo and I will be at Dice Tower West in a few weeks! I’ll be debuting new WITWAT with gorgeous silver glass colors there! Here’s a (slightly blurry–silverglass is hard to photograph!) sneak peak:
Whew! Well that was a lot, but it’s been a goodly while since I posted anything. Let me know in comments or via email if anything seems unclear. Thank you, as always, for reading and your input! =)
