The colors were calling – Question #3

Front door - sign should read warning disaster area!

I went into the studio yesterday.  It had been awhile since I spent some time in there.  I have a pretty good inventory right now, and no custom orders pending. So it was easy not to be back in the cold shop.  I really hate working in the cold, my fingers and brain don’t work so well and the glass doesn’t cooperate.

I heat the studio with a woodstove, but right now it has a cat bed on top of it

The deep snow made it difficult just to go back there, and now that it is melting it is quite the muddy venture.  I often take winters off to recharge my creative spirit and to think about new projects for the upcoming season.

I had this urge, something was pulling me back to the studio.   Was it the dancing mermaids over the doorway?

I stood in the doorway looking at all the unfinished projects and the CLUTTER everywhere.  At first I was completely overwhelmed by what I saw.  Certainly it couldn’t have been all that chaos in there, that I was anxious to see.

I take a look inside and seriously consider just closing the door and walking away

Slowly, slowly I started the process of organizing unfinished projects, inventory and packing material, and wrapping paper leftover from holiday orders. Stacks were all over of inspirational books and magazines, and inventory that I had pulled out to photograph for promotional purposes.  Odds and ends and bits and pieces that I don’t always know what to do with, but I just can’t seem to part with because I am a pack rat, were scattered everywhere.

Before I knew it,  just like a kid in a candy store, all the colors the many, many colors were pulling me and calling to me, and I must answer.  There I was daydreaming and thinking of new projects  and playing with all that colorful glass.  I know it won’t be long before I’ll be back with Jimmy playing loudly in the background (in case you didn’t know, I’m a Parrot Head) while I dance and sing along out of tune, and create my tropical fantasies.  Spring must be on the way, right?

Glass arrives in large sheets which I cut into small pieces and stack on tables and shelves and the floor - okay so it is everywhere!
