Went biking at sunset. It was lovely. I made these sea turtles so go on the wave plate I already fused. It is now in the kiln firing.
I drove down to Denver to the meeting of the Glass Artists of Colorado. Ed Schmid a very well known glass sculptor did a demo for us. He is in town teaching a glass sculpting class. He took a drawing one of our members did and made it out of glass before our eyes.
Adding one of the eye stalks and warming it back up while working on it.
Finishing up the eyes, with Mike holding it. It was a fabulous demo. It was also good to see everyone. Meanwhile back at my studio the turtles are fused to the waves. I painted a bit of gold on them and they are back in the kiln slumping into a mold now.
When I got back John served dinner on the deck and we ate and watched sunset with lightning. The turtles are now a bowl.
Small rainbow and the path around McMurry pond.
Milkweeds along lake and the first part of sunset.
Gaillardia, purple flowers and milkweed. Sunset cloud.
The turtle and mermaid will go on this waves piece when I am not so tired. I went to Denver again today for the last of my 5 Dr appointments. I am healthy and done for the year with those. this is downtown Denver from the top of the Kaiser building. An afternoon rainstorm is rolling of the mountains. I also had time to stop at the wholesale glass store and buy too much dichroic glass- you can never have too much, right??
Presunset on my bike ride. Presunset on my bike ride.
