Though we can't believe it has been a full five months since the last post, you may recall we were struggling with the idea of packable lamps for visitors to the island to take home. We have been very successful with two ideas- the flat lamp and the mini lamp. The flat lamp is simply the large white globe unassembled. The pieces are color coded and if you can follow 2 simple directions, you can make it at home! The mini lamp is the design scaled down and placed over battery operated, color changing tea lights...so cute! We provide a sturdy box for travel (we've even shipped in these boxes with success), and they've become best-sellers over the last few months.
We've been having so much fun with the glass kiln and are making new projects every week...by far the favorite is the oil and vinegar cruets and the salt and pepper shakers. We continue to be amazed at what can be done in a really hot oven!
The cruets are made from wine bottles and the shakers are from Cruzan rum bottles. No two are alike!
In other good news, Water Candy was listed on Trip Advisor a few months ago, and is currently ranked #34 in all St. Thomas attractions, and #2 in shopping! Have you been to the shop? We would love a review! Click on the TripAdvisor badge to the right.
Earlier this week Barbara was interviewed by the Daily News for an article in a special Mother Earth edition coming out next week...very exciting!
Thanks for stopping by the blog, (we'll try to be more regular with updates!) and visit the studio anytime!
