All I Need is Crackers

I made a cream cheese creation for a party. Tree is sitting on a square plate with my blue sugar jar next to soup bowls. Nothing like being creative with something you can eat or eat off of. Now to get the crackers. Merry Christmas!

Throwing for an Oval

Lately, my new focus is to make custom items for me. Not a friend, not a neighbor, not to sell....Me. I needed a weather proof sign to redirect package deliveries from my front gate to my side door. My favorite way to "make" is to throw on the wheel and alter the shape. Since I preferred an oval shape for my sign, I threw a flat platter with a rounded edge. I sliced a diamond-like shape out of the center and pushed and smooshed until the two sides came together. I used a metal rib to compress and even out the center before I painted on three coats of a dark slip. Once that firmed up, I carved in the words, painted them in with yellow colored slip and carved the edge to create a rope-like edge. The edge got a blue glaze and the center got a clear. Now what else do I need?

When in doubt, carve it out.

!!Whoa!!!! How did a year get away from me? I'm still having fun creating with clay, keeping my clay class going at the center and firing the kiln. This piece is about 11 inches tall. It was suppose to be a simple piece to put in my sunroom to grow some cherry tomatoes through the winter, but I always get a bit carried away with extra handles, dark slip and carving. That is the fun of it all, isn't it though.

Am I Blue Over You?

Am I blue over you? If you are my pottery piece, the answer is yes. Beautiful cobalt blue glaze all over the above large lidded pot and the mini lidded pot which sits in front of the large lidded pot in its greenware stage. They both went to a fireplace mantle and bookcase in a beautiful white living room. A classic look and still my favorite color.
