I just opened the kiln and it's full of the ugliest beads I've made in a long, long time. It's not from lack of creativity, nor is it from a muse gone missing. It's from putting pressure on myself to "produce". I've had some amazing sales and my Etsy shop has gotten a bit empty...egads! So I got myself into a frenzy to fill the shop. BAD IDEA! Now I will still have an empty shop and I have this pile of ugly beads. So today, I am going to just do what I do, and enjoy the process of doing it. I cleaned off the torching space to give my mind a chance to relax in blank slate mode and hopefully tomorrow's kiln will have something that makes me smile.
This set is on it's way to the east coast, but I love the depth it has.
