New Item: Ceramic Clip

Hanging Ceramic Clip for photo, a favorite poem, a cherished card or a reminder note

Hanging Ceramic Clip for photo, a favorite poem, a cherished card or a reminder note

There have been some items that I have made over the years that end up as a personal favorite. This has not always meant that my customers like them so much, but this little clip is one of those items that I like a lot!

It’s a little piece of handmade art that can hang on your wall (or in your cubical at work) and will securely hold a photo, a cherished greeting card, favorite poem, or just a reminder note. This isn’t your ordinary clip. It grabs what you choose to display securely and can be easily changed as needed.

This one has an impression of the unique design found on the bottom of an old candy dish. It was impressed into clay and created a stamp for me to use over and over on many of my clay pieces. I may use these clips on some holiday ornaments, too, but I haven’t decided what should hang at the bottom for that purpose.

Happy fall, everyone! (The weather looks to be very fall-like for the next few days! Enjoy it!)

Pair of Dipping Dishes for Grating Garlic and Olive Oil

Olive oil is so good for you! This pair of dishes can be used for grating garlic on the textured bottom, adding olive oil and herbs if so desired. I have them for sale in my Amazon shop right now. They are the perfect size for your table. I also have singles listed in my shop, so take a look! Creative Clay Cafe Handmade at Amazon

PS: The raised textured areas were made by pressing in one of my custom clay stamps that I made from the pattern on the bottom of a vintage drinking glass.

Have a great week! It’s getting closer to spring every day!
