It is another I Heart Macro Sunday!!! I wanted to get this posted before mom and I head out for our show at our friends winery Sleepy Creek Vineyards, Oakwood, IL. The show is called First Sundays at Sleepy Creek. We will be showing our jewelry from noon to 4pm and there is suppose to be music and of course the wine :) If you are in the area head on over and check it out. The atmosphere and wines are fantastic!
Okay, on with the show.
I thought it would be fun to playing a guessing game for this weeks macro shots.
The item I took photographs of is something mom and I use all the time.
We are suppose to clean it every 5-10 uses, but of course that hasn't happened.
You mean we are suppose to clean our tools...though I have to say my metals professor would hit me upside my head for saying that :)
I love the colors and the textures that have formed from the use of this tool.
Last macro shot - have you guessed what it is yet. If not, it is something mom and I use when we enamel in the kiln.
Have you figured it out yet?
Okay, if you haven't here is the full shot.
It is our kiln shelf. We have kiln wash on it and it is laid at the bottom of our kiln. The shelf catches dropped enamel so it doesn't get on the floor of our kiln. As you can see it really needs to be cleaned up and new layers of kiln wash to be painted on. But I just love all the textures and colors that have accumulated over a year - yes I know we are bad.
That is it. Mom and I will be heading for a our show here shortly. I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday!
