Thanks Jewel Envy!
I want to say that I am very proud to have been a part of Jewel Envy
for the past two years. When I first arrived at the studio, I didn’t have that
much experience aside from my training, so I began at the very beginning… I
learned a lot from the many artists who have worked in the studio over the past
few years. Thanks Jewel Envy. Happy 5-year anniversary!
I haven’t actually taught any student courses, but after seeing
students improve their skills and participate in two student exhibitions for
two years, I am very impressed and am now motivated to start teaching soon. Everyone
has told me that teaching involves so much more than simply teaching students,
and that I stand to learn a lot from them myself. I am really looking forward to it.

|Our small kiln is getting a little shelf insert to collect our enamel spills
I seemed to have neglected my blogging duties… I am back in action after a relaxing Holiday spent with family. My first concern upon returning was taking care of our enameling kilns. We have some Enamel classes coming up soon so I want them to be in tip top shape for students and of course for myself and other enamelists in the studio. After searching the internet and making a few calls I came across the Pottery Supply House and their technician Geoff. Yesterday I dropped the kiln off and in a matter of minutes he had it rewired and back up and running. After discussing the issue of cleanliness and enameling in a kiln they suggested simply buying extra shelves to collect any mess and prevent ruining the built in bricks. A very economical choice compared to other options I had researched, and so simple! Now I’m thinking I should give them a try this afternoon just to make sure they do the trick and to get some work done. – Alexis
