Purple and Gold



Seems most of my kiln work lately has been full of purple and gold. For those of you who don't live near, those are LSU's colors. Ranked #1 football team in the country and undefeated. The only downside to this, Saturday during gametime, art shows are a ghost towns. Oh well, guess you can't have everything.

Yes, you do see a little black and gold in there too. The last kiln was full of it. The Saints arn't doing to badly this year either. We southerner's do love our football.

That reminds me, there's another kilnload of glass to be unpacked before I leave for Broadmoor in the morning. It's still above 250 degrees, a little hot to deal with, which is not to say I haven't pulled 300 degree glass from a kiln and wrapped it in towels when I've run out of time before. It's just a lot less painfull to wait until it cools. hahaha

At least tomorrow I'm not going to be in a rush. I can take my time, arrange the glass, sign the pieces I've forgotton (which involves a diamond tipped glass engraver, not as easy as it sounds), polish, (there's ALWAYS more to polish) and put together all the windchimes I keep firing. I'll bring a book, just in case, but it looks like I'll be pretty busy.

See ya soon
