Orange is the New Black vol.2

Follow up for the post; "Orange (and yellow!) is the New Black":)
She's so lovely and deliciously yellow, yum yum!

“Colours and fairytales inspire my style. I can't wear black, but any other colours I can mix freely. Yellow is my favourite colour, as you can see.

Pippi Longstocking is my style icon.”

Heidi, 25- years old, 13th May 2011, Kellosaarenkatu, Helsinki

Work in Progress; Barbara Otoničar

Please meet absolutely wonderful and ever so sweet Mrs Barbara Otonicar from Slovenia.
She's is specialised in animals in art, and has made me four pieces featuring Rasmus (Palamedees Shahban) using chalk:) Barbara is currently planning an expo featuring paintings of rescue animals:)
I wish her buckets full of inspirations and can't wait to see what she comes up for her sole exhibition:)

Tiffany Glass for Beginners

I had signed myself on a Tiffany Art Class Course November 2010, before I knew I would be opening the boutique, he:) The course came in bit of a bad timing, but 'cause I never have time to have holidays so I though I should be selfish a little and do the course, relax and get inspired a little:) So I'm on a mini intensive Tiffany Course from Mon to Sun, altogether 46hours. The course takes place in Hiidenopisto, in Vihti:)

This is how far I got on the first day. The glass is milk glass which I absolutely love anyways, so was ever so happy to have it as a first piece to work with:) One should always start with an easy pattern, so ever so kind and more experienced co-student offered me this rather lovely dove piece, which reminds me of "Dove of Peace" actually, heh:) I've cut all the pieces, grind all the sharp edges and attached some copper foil around every piece.
Day 2: My tutor showing me how to melt the first seams of lead came to combine the pieces together:) She makes it look so easy!
Okies, first Dove done:) Just need to add some wire to make loops for hanging:)
To gain more practise, I was advised to make another dove from slightly trickier piece of glass. In this case, glass being Cathedral glass in light blue/turquoise. Cathedral Glass is smooth on the other side and with slightly"bumpy" texture on the other side (in lack of better words), as was the milk glass, milky/opaque on the other side, clear on the other.
Cutting the pieces with my brand new "Diamantor", the Glass cutter.
This is Anna- Stiina grinding the edges of her beautiful lamp shade. This is her 3rd course in Tiffany Glass. In fact, I am the only total beginner of the course:)
And this is how far I got on day 2. All the pieces are cut, and ready to be copper foiled:) Mon and Tue total of 6 working hours, so the pieces came along quite quick, me thinks:)
