Cosmic Honu Class

This is the piece from my first class with Gordon Uyehara, Cosmic Honu.  We all were given a template, a small dome to shape our shell, and guidance to make this little guy.  I got some great colors from the Liver of Sulphur Gel that Cool Tools carries.  The ribbon was purchased from Class Act Designs.

Bronwen Heilman's class, Rapid Fire: Surface Painting Lampworked Beads

The other class with Bronwen Heilman was really fun, we were given 3 white bead blanks, primary color enamels, which we mixed up to get the colors we wanted, and we painted away.  The results were painterly, and interesting!   These beads are annealed twice.  The encased bead, on the left,  was done with a sheet of glass, which was tricky.

…from a week in Milwaukee, to see family and attend 2 classes at the Bead & Button show.  My first class was with Gordon Uyehara, Cosmic Honu, and the other with Bronwen Heilman, Rapid Fire: Surface Painting Lampworked Glass Beads with Vitreous Enamels.  I enjoyed them both and made a few great things.  The shopping venue is fun, one large show that included lots of my favorite people.  Unlike Tucson, where you have to go to many venues to find everyone, they were all in one spot.

While I was gone, Denver experienced huge rain storms, and the backyard is very lush with flowers.  A bit different than the photo I took of this birdbath in the mid winter months!
