I made a series of buttons for a friend who does leatherwork and the rest are pendants and charms destined for the shop and the Ceramic Art Bead Market.
There was also the business of making lots and lots of little leaf cabochons for Beki Haley's Beaders Dream Retreat. I'm sponsoring the event, so each attendee will get a porcelain or stoneware leaf cabochon in their bag. I am working on the stoneware pieces today while the little kiln runs a bisque-firing.

As of right now, I'm still working in stoneware and I've got a bisque-load running in the garage. Sea urchin cabochons and more little leaf cabochons are on the table today. I'm really looking forward to completing this batch because I plan to move away from so much production work and start playing more. I'd like to spend some time coming up with new designs and also working in art that isn't necessarily bead-related. Change is good.
So, what's on your work table?
