.... on Builder Chaos from yesterday and have decided it is a very good thing, yes indeedy. I mentioned that the shed was the only comfortable place left to sit but also there are strange men in my house making one helluva noise and mess, so escape was the only option. This morning I went out at 8.15am and bar lunch and tea breaks I stayed out until 5.30, the kiln was full. I can't remember the last time I filled the kiln and the sad truth is with all the carry on of the last ten months I was totally out of the habit of spending the whole day making beads. I used to spend every hour of every day out there and here is the thing...for me it is self evolving and by that I mean that when I am totally focused on the glass I percolate new ideas, I try new techniques and generally just have a more interesting time of it and (imo) I make more interesting beads. So there we have it...I feel like today I found something that I didn't even know was missing and I am happier than I have been for quite some time.Plus I have a stall at the Big Bead Show coming up on 30.10.10 at Sandown and it will be lovely to put some fresh beads out.
