Appetizers or Desserts

My mom and I were discussing pottery and she suggested I make some relish trays with separate compartments. I thought about it and then saw a video clip of a potter making an appetizer tray and decided to try doing some myself. They were so fun to do!

The glaze turned out awesome. It is gratifying to have something work how you want it to. Many times what you want is not what you get. A lot of those times you get something better.

I am ready to start filling these up with all kinds of Christmas goodies!

Flower Girls

This hand built flower shaped bowl is a quick and easy project for anyone, especially for those who have not played with clay before. A group of 15 12-13 year old girls and their 2 leaders came over for a night of fun.

They did a great job and left with some pretty nice bowls. It was fun to see how different the bowls turned out.
