Jellybug Featured on Friday Finds!

“Wine and cheese go great together, so how clever to make a serving tray out of a wine bottle.”
My etched recycled wine bottle serving tray was featured on Friday Finds, a new weekly spotlight of Etsy artists by architect, photographer, and wine lover Erin Garrison. Erin sells prints of her original photographs in her Etsy shop. My personal favorite is Rome Architecture -- I love the way the tight circle of the skylight widens into the rings on the dome walls, then reflects across the border between wall and ceiling to curve the other way toward the statue. The photo has wonderful movement.

Erin's favorite of tray is the etched sweet pea tray. I also sell plain bottle trays with a cheese spreader or a decorative gift bag in a variety of colors. All of my trays have hanger so that they can be displayed on a wall or in a window when not in use! They make great entertaining, housewarming, and thank you gifts, and they're perfect for wine lovers!

Glass Squiggles - Hot Off the Candle Flame!

I'm gearing up for my winter show -- the annual Festival of Lights in Greenbelt, MD this coming weekend. Display boards, gift bags, stickers, cards, new tables for a new booth size, oh my! At the same time, everyone on the internet seems to have discovered my Recycled Wine Bottle Serving Tray at once! Eek! They're flying out the door like very heavy hot cakes, and I'm piping them through my kiln as fast as I can.

Horde of Squiggles

Of course, I'm also trying to build up some new inventory for the show! I'm making a few batches of my signature squiggle pendants. I've just finished bending a horde of squiggles and polishing the soot out of all the wee twists and turns. Any requests for background colors? :D
