Star and snowflake ornaments for the holiday season or beyond!

 I like to hang them in the window ...

 ...or on the tree ...


...or as a decoration on a gift ...


 ... or give them as a gift...


Enjoy!

Some new blended clay vases - glazed on the inside to hold water.


Blue and white with cobalt oxide.





Three clays - red, white and blue.

Golden Harvest


Soon all these golden mulberry tree leaves will fall and then enrich our compost pile.


'Our' happy hummingbird! Those fast little wings ...

Quiet beauty


The little details of daily life always catch my eye - like this 'arrangement' on our kitchen window sill. Love the colors!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!


I'm very grateful for my wonderful husband and my great family! My children are very important to me, I 'm so happy they are in my life.


A fruit bowl which can be filled to overflowing with all the fruit and vegetables that we love to eat!

A flowery vase for your blossoms


In this post http://adventuresinclay.blogspot.com/2011/10/lovely-late-afternoon-sun.html you can see the freshly thrown vases. Here is the finished one! I altered the rim and carved the flower design freehand as the clay was drying.


A hand-formed flower is attached at the deepest opening.


Inside is a lovely yellow glaze that keeps the vase waterproof.
