Dueling Kilns

Dueling kilns is when I fill one kiln and let it ramp down...then start up another kiln. So I can keep on working. I don't do this very often because it's a very long day. If the glass if flowing, there I times that I think it's worth it. Normally, I can get one of the kilns empty and the beads cleaned before I close up the studio for the night. Then in the morning, start the process with the next sets of beads.

The below lampwork beads are in Fiestaware hues. They are circus bright when they are all together in these larger strands. When they are used as accents in jewelry, they have a modern favor.

Got to get moving, I've got another pile of beads to clean.

Have a happy, creative day!
