Studio Visitor and New Lampwork Beads

I was busy in the studio and heard a odd sound outside. Low and behold...this is the site that greated me. Odd looking visitor don't ya think.
Here's what he looks like when he's just hangin' out and watching for toads. Don't let his photo size mislead you...he's huge. With his wings extended, he's a good 3 plus feet.
It's been really hot here. With the torch and kiln running, I've been having troubles keeping my studio cool. I did manage to make the below set. It's called MINE...because I claimed it first to make some jewelry. :-)
Well, that's it for today...I'm off to the studio before it gets too hot out there.

Have a happy, creative day!!!!
