Clay Plaques Ready to Fire When Dry

Stamped clay plaques. I also worked on some pumpkins, leaves and trees that will hang from a tree branch (yet to be gathered on a Sunday walk) and they will be new fall home decor.
Have a great week!

My fall shows will be underway soon. I have been working on some new projects including this 9 1/2 inch appetizer plate that comes with a handmade toothpick holder. The items I make are all slab-built. No molds are used whatsoever…

This is one of what will be available to purchase as an appetizer server. Chop up some cheese and salami…maybe olives. Toothpicks would be used as a sort of appetizer kabob maker… Now I’m hungry.

I should have my fall show schedule ready to post in about a week. Have a great Sunday evening.


Handmade Glazed Soap Dishes

Soap Dishes

Finished dishes both now in my Etsy Shop! 


Show schedule for fall will be posted soon. Also, I have the perfect project going on in my other creative endeavor. TORCHED FUSION will soon have information posted about my Art Clay (copper) that I have been playing with. How about that? A clay artist now torch-enameling on copper clay pieces. The perfect union… Photos posted on both blogs about that next week.

Finally… Table for Patio Finished!

Table – After (see “before” photo in our May blog post)

“After” square table for the patio. Free-hand trees are not my strongest suit, but for us in the back yard, I am happy. Found one of the paint colors at a very reduced price (.75!) at the Re-Store. It is a place to purchase inexpensive DIY project materials. (I suggest you have some idea of what you are going there for, or it can be somewhat disappointing.) Second location is set to open mid-August in Omaha on 108th & Maple. Proceeds go to raise funding for Habitat for Humanity.
I’m pretty sure fall was on my mind while I decided what to paint on this and in the selection of color. It’s been brutally hot outside! I imagine coffee on the patio sitting next to this table when things cool down.

Happy Spring! Click on the link in the post below and enjoy!!

I am posting a link you to an amazing video of flowers opening.. I have never seen anything like it…click on this: La vida de las flores
Then, hit the arrow on the screen in the lower left corner. If you have speakers, play the music with it. Very cool!

Tomorrow, a garden art post. STAY TUNED!!
