The end of October and we have yet to have a heavy frost. The yard still has green tomatoes on the vine and several sweet green peppers/ The lemon grass and lemon verbena are huge! They also smell so nice. Thyme is spreading nicely down the hillside and between the stones. Lavender from seed is safely tucked into the greenhouse growing nicely.

Enameling in the studio requires a few tools. There is the small kiln and just as important are the gloves. Mine have several burn spots on them. The steel tray to put the trivet on and then the large tool to take out the tray.
This is a trivet with a copper piece layered with white enamel. It is sitting on top of the kiln before it goes into a kiln. The kiln will heat up to 1450 before I remove the piece. If you are making earrings or jewelry, always remember to leave a clean hole.
