Update on Pottery Lesson Week 13 plus update on my Wild Flower Garden
So I decided to make myself a tray ...
I had lots of fun making it ...the handles were something new for me.
They look very thick but when the clay is put in to the kiln it shrinks by 12% so they will be smaller on the finished item.
By doing this I can glaze the underside of the tray too ...
I must leave the bottom of the legs free of glaze as if they had glaze on them it would stick to the kiln.
I have these lovely purple Mop Heads and I also have a pale pink and blue Lace Cap ...
I hope to take some more photo's of the flowers in our garden today.
Everything is going to plan.
Not quick enough though.
But you have to learn patience when being a gardener.
They bloom in their own time.
But for most of the time they reward you with such beauty and joy.
Here is a photo taken yesterday of a Sunflower on our back deck.
It must have been planted by birds.
Or perhaps Bella our cat had it hanging on her long fur.
Collected at the bird feeders.
But we have watched it grow strong and straight then yesterday this smiling, happy sunflower said ' Hello'
It is a bit smaller than we thought with such a large stalk.
But perhaps as it opens up it's face will get larger and have a bigger smile.
We love it anyway.
Thanks for popping by.
I had fun.
