Late Summer KCBIA (Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association) was asking if I could make some ceramic elves with movable legs for their hidden elves promotion in Downtown Kamloops before Christmas. I felt overwhelmed and it was so much fun doing them. I am sure that I will create more of those little friends for the next Christmas season!
Right now I am getting ready for the spring season and what is more colorful in spring than different types of flowers. The three photos above are showing the glazed flowers before they go into the kiln. They are always looking pretty pale as the glaze never shows the final outcome. It needs a lot of fantasy to imagine how they will look at the end of the day. The opening of the kiln is always exciting. I love those shining colors.
With the help of welding wire those flowers are now a perfect decoration for planters or backyards, they enhance almost everything ;).
Easter was the main theme! As there are so many different creation possibilities and people let their ideas flow they created beautiful seasonal decoration.
To keep the hands busy it doesn't have to be necessarily a Easter bunny. Look at that beautiful mask and the flower turtle
Doing pottery and being creative makes you hungry. This time the artisans were enjoying a German Streuselkuchen.
