Although this could very well be a picture of me finding a new treasure at a favorite nursery, it's actually an illustration by David Catrow for a children's book called Plantzilla.

There's No Business Like Snow Business


It was time again to make snowflakes for my church choir and coworkers.  Once again, I chose to use a pattern created by the talented Lani Neil.  What colors to use this year?    I settled on light blue irrid. green irrid. and pink  made by Portland's Uroboros Glass.

I love cutting glass!

Cut up, cleaned, and ready to assemble.


One load in the kiln ready to fire.  Cold nights are a great time to run a kiln.

Ready to hang.




Happy Friday all!

  1. Such a gift would make anyone break into song... very lucky choir members. It's been a couple of years since I saw your lovely flakes: do you really enjoy cutting glass? It seems potentially hazardous to me, but the result is quite amazing. Merry Christmas, Peter.

  3. How incredibly beautiful! Portland's glass shops have been under siege lately for the pollution they produce. Hope they figure it out, as their products are fabulous.
