I have actually been working, just not with paints, dyes or fibers. This is my very own new glass kiln, purchased from The TLD Design Center in Westmont. I've been wanting one for several years and now feel confident enough to experiment on my own. It's been going very well and I will soon have pictures to show you. Right now it's all about the process. I have been taking classes in a variety of jewelry making disciplines for the past 2 years determined to identify my next creative focus. This is looking good so far.
