Pot Melt Experiment and other kiln projects

There are no mistakes when fusing glass.  Ron's most popular dishes are made up of pendants, bracelets, rings, etc. that somehow did not turn out as expected.  So the Pot Melt sounded like an amazing way to utilize not only mistakes but every bit of scrap glass.
The scraps are placed in a clay pot with holes, which is then suspended over a saucer.  This will catch the melted glass as it flows through.

The result was not exactly as planned.  Next time, bigger holes, and a stainless steel bowl.
Now, we will somehow recycle the "recycled" glass

Lots of activity getting ready for the first market in May - the 100 Mile Farmers Market
Pressed flowers on handmade paper - cards and bookmarks

Less than perfect brooches are used in the design of these soap dishes
