Glass Fusing

While spending out holiday and traveling here and there I forgot to write about one thing! The great improvements in out studio. You would not even believe how we made our fused glass items. Until last Christmas all we had was a lousy glass cutter and a steel ruler.
For Christmas I got a Toyo glass cutter from my husband that I consider my favorite tool! This summer we made lots of new investment. Our KILN has just arrived. It is a cute littel feminine piece: stainless steel, programmable and it also has delay function. Moreover we bought a glass grinder as well!

There was only three programs of the rental kiln is available for us, but experimenting starts now. a little change here and there can make miracles! Here is some of them, without being fully happy with these:

Now we redecorating our studio and getting ready for the Szentendre Day and Night Art Expo.

Back to Glass

I was not blogging for three weeks.


I am sure many of you ask what did I do then?

Apart from caring for my three kids id READ! This is something I do not do, due to the lack of time, during the year.

I bought some good books for the summer. Three of them was English, but all of them were simply great:

1. The Boss Of You

It is all about woman’s indie business. It is in how to be proud and professional, how to run such a business. Well The time is coming soon when I will solely run our family business. Get ready!

2. Soapmaking

This is something that I am really interested at. I learned from this book, that the soaps we use today are really detergents containing petroleum! Yak. It has been a while since I use well crafted homemade soaps!

3. Noé márkája

This was the only Hungarian book on today’s consuming society. Our habits, that we do not even realize. It is a great book!

4. Glass

This book is on glasses. (Unbelievable, isn’t is?) Glass history, fusing thechnics and all kind of neat stuff. It was a lot of fun!

Now, that I had plenty of rest I am relaxed and my To- Do List is quite short. Just washing to do!
