Last year I saw somewhere necklaces with ceramic and recycled glass pendants and I was thrilled. I had to try that. I did a lot of research to find the right glass. Fortunately I found a company in Ontario, they sent me exactly the kind of glass I needed. My favorite colors: bottle green, a deep dark blue and turquoise. I was thankfully, that the clay I am normally working with was usable. Than, I had to find the melting temperature, it didn't work out with 1050 Celsius, so I tried it with 1250...

Right now I am getting ready for the spring season and what is more colorful in spring than different types of flowers. The three photos above are showing the glazed flowers before they go into the kiln. They are always looking pretty pale as the glaze never shows the final outcome. It needs a lot of fantasy to imagine how they will look at the end of the day. The opening of the kiln is always exciting. I love those shining colors.

Easter was the main theme! As there are so many different creation possibilities and people let their ideas flow they created beautiful seasonal decoration.

We spent four years in Paraguay and called a little farm our own. Here you see a variety of my work I created during those years.

This year I will focus on a variety of smaller things, flowers of a different kind on a welding wire (on different lengths). They are already looking pretty nice, so I am working on different shapes.

First I started with my Open Studio Event in the middle of October where I introduced my studio to the neighborhood. During November and December I joined around 10 different Craft Fairs . I met so many nice people and it was a lot of fun. I am really looking forward to next year!
