As Promised! More Tiered Art with Clay and Vintage Glassware

We are having a BLAST putting these little gems together! We’ve hunted for the perfect vintage glassware (and/or china…) and combined those pieces with some of our handmade clay art pieces. My favorite part is matching glaze colors to the china pieces and also the matching the glassware design to the overall theme of the combination.  Suggested uses: trinket tray, jewelry holder, serving dish for small pieces of dessert, candy dish       Be sure to visit my Etsy store:


Glassware Jackpot!

I just shopped a local estate sale and I must say, I hit the jackpot on vintage glassware pieces! Vintage china, too, so look for many more of our vintage finds combined with handmade clay pieces to make yard art and serving pieces! Layering them into towers of creative vertical art has been amazing and unique. Pictures as soon as we have some finished! Today was my lucky day. 😮

Clay and Vintage Glass Combinations

Two-tiered trinket tray (or serving dish) layered with vintage glass pieces and our handmade clay dishes.  This is currently for sale on our Etsy Store.  $16 (plus shipping approximated at $4 — we always underestimate shipping…)  This particular piece stands about 7″ high.  The top clay dish is about 3 1/2″ in diameter and the lower clay dish is about 7″ in diameter.  Catch your jewelry on your dresser or in the bathroom.  Would look really wonderful as a candy server.   Buy it at

Two-tiered Tray Mixing a Bit of Today with Days Gone By…

Here is one of our newest creations!  Two of our handmade clay dishes layered with old glassware pieces.  More of these will be coming since this was so much fun… It can be used for the bathroom to catch your jewelry or display small soaps — or maybe in the bedroom as a trinket tray on your dresser.    Whatever you decide, we will be putting more of these together so you can have one for your very own.  (It would make a great candy dish, too!  I see it full of chocolates…)

Bits of Today and Days Gone By

Here are a couple of our Indoor/Outdoor layered dishes.  Handmade clay discs are attached to the back of the lower plate along with glass gems for some character.  We’ve added bits of the past by layering with vintage glassware and dishes.  These can be used to serve desserts on a special occasion or set it out in the yard as a bird feeder.  Each piece is one-of-a-kind, for sure.  You can find these particular selections at Eclectic in Valley, Nebraska–part of a three-shop experience with a bakery called Delicious (because it is…) and the Wendy Deane Gallery and Loft.  Visit Eclectic Wedneday through Sunday 9am-6pm.  (you can do a mapquest to find your way — 20 minutes from Omaha — and well worth the trip!)
