Slowly but surely

Time really ought to slow down a little bit. There are not enough hours in the day right now. I am making significant progress on my final holloware project. Raising is getting a little easier. I notice a huge improvement in my hammering skills, especially when planishing. Instead of tons of accidental knicks and gouges with the hammer like in the beginning, I can use the hammer to make things smooth and shiny!

This is the top and bottom of my final project. The top is going to be cut in half (it's about halfway there now, would have been done by this point if not for my hatred of cutting disks). More photos to come as this project progresses.

Lots to do still on my production pieces for jewellery. It was so beautiful last week too it was hard to focus on the task at hand. Instead in the calm before the storm I replaced all my emery sticks. Kind of a fresh start right at the end. I went to the glass studio on Saturday and made the rest of my centres for this project. I made twice the amount I needed to so I have lots to choose from! Photos to follow.

Speaking of the beautiful weather, it was so gorgeous on Wednesday and Thursday last week. This city was a completely different place when it was warm, it was a refreshing change to the dreary rain and snow. I went for a walk with my friend Katrina on Citadel Hill. Behold the glory of a sunny Halifax!
