I had the inspiration to try to make a cupcake panel, I thought it would be cute! So I drew it up and then spent a couple hours cutting and grinding each piece. Then into my kiln and fired it up to 1600 degrees. After it's done "baking" I can't lift the lid and see it for at least 5 hours, so off to bed I went. I bounced out of bed and ran to the studio, and "wow" just so cute! I loved it!
It was too dark outside to take a picture against the window and I was thinking about a blue border, so here's my shot.
I was right in the middle of e-mailing a friend about how happy I was with this when I heard the dreaded "ping". The ping of glass breaking in half. Glass will fight itself, and you have to be careful to use compatible pieces, and if you don't let it cool exactly as it wants to,
and sometimes just because... it will break.
Unfortunately, this does happen, glass breaks,
and that is how my life has been this week.
I'm looking for some mud...
