I have been experimenting and playing with clay...with the view to coming up with some new ceramic ideas to pursue in 2013!
I'm very lucky to have finally earnt my long service leave, 10 years of teaching service gets me, a terms holiday...Woo Hoo you can hear me say!
So how about the blossom vase above?
I have used a lovely black glaze within and the celedon over the simple carved surface.
It's currently hanging with some black dyed twine, but that could change?
It was a pleasure to make...is it a winner?
New beads from the kiln!
I have looked into some ways to make necklaces, the turquoise leather thong, black silk thread and silver silk knitted cord.
All worth a strong considerations for 2013...What are your thoughts??
Do you like the black ouch bead? I was trying out a gemstone cut!
On a side note, we went to the local market today! We have my lovely BIL out from the UK, with his extra lovely Fiancee...so we went to show them the sights!
Look what I found!
Originally $30, then another customer asked for best price....$25. I walked away...did an eBay search on the name, made sure I confirmed my suspicions, that it was indeed a lovely object.
I came back to the stall and the gentleman said, "you interested in the typewriter, love"?...urm Yes (smile) "have it for $15" he said......OK thanks!!
It's heavy love!...no worries I have a husband :) ........LOL you found a use for him then LOL !!
