    6-10 Night Market @midtowncrossing  I'm all set up, but some of my hanging items didn't like the breeze (ok, wind!) I've got a shady spot and music nearby. Come by and enjoy the evening strolling through Turner Park. We will miss this kind of night in a few months. #handmadegifts #potterylove #enameledcopper #firstdayofautumn My last 2017 Night Market is coming up this Friday at Turner Park @midtowncrossing  Forecast shows windy icon on my phone weather app, so I hope that changes by then! Clay art and wind isn't a good combination. #handmadepottery #nightmarket #enameljewelry #fridaynightatturnerpark #turnerpark #omahamakers

Clay Word Plaque in its Bisque State

This plaque will be glazed after it dries and is fired to a bisque state

This plaque will be glazed after it dries and is fired to a bisque state


I had one of those “aha” moments this past week, so I now know I should break up my wordier phrases onto smaller ones to press into the clay. I carve the words in backwards and make my own inspiring plaques to stamp into a larger one.
Cannot wait to finish some of these and have them at the farmer’s markets. Transparent glaze colors really pop the words once they are finished.

Glazed Clay and Enameled Copper – in combination – Unique Handmade Jewelry


Clay components paired with enameled copper pieces make these earrings unique. I have matched the glazes with complimentary enamel colors to create one of a kind pairs of earrings. Today, I made a few pairs of mismatching pieces that will be glazed to match one another in color, but not in shape. The pairs in the photos will be at the Farmers Market in Florence next Sunday along with many of my finished clay pieces.
Come by and see art as well as produce 10-3 at Florence Mill in Omaha next Sunday August 9th.
