Table Settings

I've wanted to make a set of dishes for a long time. I finally did it! I hosted a table at a "Date Night" event. Hosting included making the menu and setting the table, contacting the other 3 couples at my table and request they bring items from the menu. Easy, peasy, right?!!! So, I… Continue reading Table Settings

I mostly hand build and the wheel as been a challenge to find time and let's be honest ---it's a bit intimidating at first. So now at my house I have a… Continue reading Doodle Art Vase

Zinnias

I love Zinnias! They are my favorite annual flower to plant in my front yard. They grow and bloom all summer long until a hard frost. I decided I wanted to capture their beauty by making a stoneware clay dish- a shallow dish, great for use and display. I used my paper crafting zinnia stamp… Continue reading Zinnias
