At last I am pleased to show you my Bee bowl that I made at Pottery.
Do you remember the scary glaze wash ..that looked like it had been in the fire.
Who could have imagined that it would turn out this lovely 'milky coffee' color.
I just LOVE it ...Love how the Bee turned out as well.
I love the shape of the bowl ..
So very pleased
Do you love it too ??
So unique and a one of a kind
Made by me ...he! he!
When I started pottery I never dreamt I would be bringing home so many unique treasures.
I have used the pottery's wheel but with my injury to my arm I think I am more of a 'Hand Build' potter
A little of the glaze flowed in to the 'E' on the word 'TEA' but I love the glaze and I think I made the back of it just as pretty as the front
Super pleased with the glaze ..it's called ' Textured Leopard'
I could make some more and they would make lovely little gifts for tea loving friends and family.
Below is an older bloom and it has turned in to the Limelight color.
They are at first this lovely bright off white.
I love to pick them and dry them to use in arrangements around the house.
If it turns out great I will make a larger one and put a ladybug on it.
I can't wait to put a great colored glaze on it to make it stand out in the garden.
Saying "Look at Me !! Look at ME !!'
Danny put up this single panel of fencing for me..in my bird watching corner ...I wanted privacy whilst sitting on my bench ...and I have tried and tried to grow a tree, bushes etc ..but there are too many roots in the soil ..so we put up this fence instead.
I and going to make some bird houses in my pottery classes to hang from the Japanese Maple
And I have made a bird to hang from the fence ...I am waiting for it to be put in the Kiln ..then I will glaze it in bright colors and once more back in the Kiln and I can bring it home.
I hope that it works out really well.
I want to keep it looking pretty and I intend to make bird houses at pottery to hang from it.
To make passer by's smile.
The Morning Glories under our Bradford Pear tree seem very happy and has decided to decorate the tree ...it makes me smile ..
It has been a very busy weeks at Maisonvogue.
We are expecting our Son's to come over for a vacation with us from Guernsey, Uk ...where I am from and where they live ..just 2 weeks to go ..I can't wait ..
So I have been 'nesting' ..we have not been together for 2 years 2 months ..they are here for 3 weeks, we are going to take a road trip to North Carolina, Blue Ridge Mountains ...for about a week and hope to see some Black Bears and lots more wildlife ..I just am so excited I could burst !!
Ryan and Wayne want to come to pottery classes with me.
So they will come to meet some of my beloved friends.
They are going to make a lovely Guernsey themed lunch for everyone to enjoy ..we will go mid morning so they meet the morning class, have lunch with some of them and then we will stay till mid afternoon so they can meet my friends from the afternoon class.
Thanks so much for popping by and spending some of your precious time with me.
