These came out of the kiln

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.


  1. I hope you have a good time in Europe! I love the little vase especially.

  2. Me encantan todos los trabajos de arcilla y los tuyos se ven geniales Drora,maravillosos!!

  3. Dear Drora, these vases are wonderful, I love the details you gave them with the tiny leaves. I hope that if Nilly will be back from Europe you can go on with your clay modelling work, it looks fantastic!
    Warm hugs, Ilona

  4. They turned out so lovely and delicate! You did an amazing job your first time and I am sure you'll be even happier with the subsequent experiments!

  5. Lovely, absolutely "delicious"! I love the leaf decorations.

  6. Quedan realmente bonitos, Drora, y me hacen pensar ¿sabes en qué? En teteras! Quedarían encantadoras unas teteras con esa tecnica cuando ya tengas jarrones suficientes. ¿Te gusta la idea? Tienes que enseñarnos alguno de esos jarrones con flores :) Un beso

  7. Un trabajo genial, te veo impaciente de continuar en este proyecto.Buena semana:-)

  8. Es un trabajo excelente . Una preciosa decoración.

  9. Beautiful creations. I love the vase and the leaf decorations. Wonderful job.

  10. Hi Drora! The ceramics look Wonderful! They are lovely in white and will make great pots for your flowers! I wish your daughter and her family safe and fun travels! I hope you have lots of time for making ceramics.... I think you are a natural!

  11. These look fantastic! I even like them in their white color state. Cannot wait to see what you do with them.Mini huggs,

  12. Only talented people like you will find beautiful vases and pots with stunning decors in a lump of clay! These don't look like firsties at all! Somehow sad that you have to interrupt your clay working flow now - but I have no doubt you will continue it as soon as Nilly is back from a hopefully nice trip to Europe.


  13. Your ceramic look amazing! Little treasures.

  15. I love seeing your mini work with clay, Drora! I've previously worked with ceramic clay and found it quite difficult. I also don't like the fact that it's such a time consuming process, I'm much too impatient!
