I'm excited that my third ceramics course will start this week. It is called "Vessels That Pour", and will involve tea pots, and other such items.
I'm happy to say that many of the items from my second course have found homes, and are not all on my living room window sills. :-)
#31 (left) - This one was easy. I made it for my mother-in-law, as a
Christmas gift. She seemed to like it. I look forward to seeing it at her house, hopefully with some nice flowers in it some day.
#32 (right) - Since she liked the first vase, I gave her this second one also. I could see this one being used as a planter (holding a small flower pot). We'll see.
#13, left), so she ended up with it under the Christmas tree, too! :-)
#33 - Ditto this one (left), it was a Christmas gift for my sister, Rose, who loves Disney. I know it is already loved in her home, since I've already seen it full of candies (but forgot to take a photo at the time, I was enjoying the turkey dinner too much).
#20 - This bowl set (right) became a Christmas gift for my friend Lily, since she is really great at entertaining people in her home, and I could imagine it filled with dips like her fresh salsa. (I learned a wonderful trick from Lily, to add fresh chopped tomato and cilantro and other veggies to store-bought salsa, and it becomes a wonderful fresh-tasting salsa. I've been doing the same ever since.)
#27 and 28 - This soap and toothbrush holder set (left) was also a gift for Lily. It didn't turn out quite as good as I had hoped, but Lily seemed to like it. (I'll see if she's actually using it next time I visit. :-) )
This sturdy mug (#7, left) and bowl (#18, right) became Christmas gifts / housewarming gifts for my nephew, Charlie, who has recently moved out on his own. I hope they will come in handy.
#3, left) was a gift for my dance instructor, Lisa. I filled it with Lindt chocolates, and added a small note : "May you be truly blessed - and spoiled - this Christmas season". We all need a little blessing, and spoiling, at times. She has been a blessing to me over these past few years.
#2, left) for Christmas.
There are a few other ceramic items making there way into our everyday living also. When I have time, I'll take some photos of them, on our counters (not just the windowsills).
