Fall Shows Begin Soon!

Nativity & Trees on Wood

My fall show line-up is set to begin on Saturday, September 9th at the Whistle Stop in Elkhorn. It is appropriately called Shopkeeper and Friends Antique & Artisan Market. This is the first one I have participated in during the fall season. I have gone there earlier in the year, but I am excited to see fall creations and decor. I hope you can join us!

Spring is here and that means you need to mark your calendar for the 4th Annual Handmade Omaha Modern Makers Spring Arts & Crafts Bazaar. Here is the  Facebook Link so that you can get an idea of what will be there on April 16 & 17. The show details are also on that home page banner on Facebook. Here is the link: HANDMADE OMAHA

I am excited to be a part of this quality show! You won’t want to miss 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!

Two Great Shows Left for 2015 Shoppers!

Stamped Clay Ornaments Accented with Vintage Buttons or Glass Pieces

ornaments20152
I have once again dipped into my vintage button collection to top off these clay ornaments. They are either stamped with my handmade stamps or old glassware patterns. Have you ever looked at the bottom of those old juice glasses, candy dishes or candle holders? They are wonderfully patterned and perfect to stamp into my clay. I recently found a rectangular ashtray with the perfect pattern to use on my soap dishes. I think that is a great repurpose, don’t you?
Thanks to all those that stopped out at the Aksarben Farmer’s Market this past Sunday. I will be back one last time on September 20th.

Leaf Ornaments Made with Found Sticks and Buttons from My Vintage Collection

Clay Leaf Ornament with Vintage Button and found twig


I am ready for fall! My new glazes inspired me to make some leaf ornaments complete with vintage button and some twigs I found on a recent walk. A specialty glaze around the edge and on the leaf veins create a beautiful earthy green color when painted over the dark brown.
Thanks for visiting my blog!
