Hello dear readers,
These are from the batch I left for Nilly to fire with her own work in her kiln.
I made them during my visit to her studio. Just played with the clay, created
a ball, stuck a short piece of a wooden skewer in its middle and moved the
ball around it to make an opening. While the pieces were still wet,
I stuck on clay leaves which I market with a needle. Pinched the opening of
one of the vases and it looks as if its borders are almost being torn out.
The pieces are not glazed or painted. I rather like them the way they are as if
carved out of stone.
They were still wet when I left and therefore not sanded. My second batch
will look better because I made it at home with no hurry and sanded it after it
was dry. Since I have no plans to give them away, they'll serve as examples for
my future work with clay.
Nilly and husband are flying to Europe tomorrow and will not be back before mid-June, so
the little houses and other items will have to wait until then.
I wish you all a wonderfully creative week ahead with blessings.
