A big thanks to the Arts Business Institute for choosing my cart with green wheels for their Handmade Holiday Gift Guide. The Arts Business Institute is an educational nonprofit that partners with regional art guilds, educational institutions and development organizations. They give practical business education to creative entrepreneurs. I've also opened a Big Cartel shop where you can see some of my sculptural work for sale.
Two posts ago I mentioned the copper carbonate which I put on some of my holiday ornaments not being so appealing for ornaments. The good news is most of them turned out just fine after I glazed them.
I've strung them on ribbon I had left over from my lavender farm gift shop. It's amazing how much time even a small ornament takes to make. Cut it out, stamp it with texture, brush oxide on, dry it, sand it, fire it, glaze it, fire it again, string ribbon on it. There they are in the kiln, seems they shrink quite a bit since they were almost touching before firing.
Yesterday Gary went to a local church sale and sold a few pieces of my pottery. Many locals are repeat customers. Next Saturday I'll be at Christmas in the Hills in Beverly Hills (Florida) which is right around the corner from us. The event is put on by the Parks and Recreation Department and the Lions Club. Donations will be accepted for Toys for Tots. There will be a parade, car show, and arts and crafts sale. Hope the weather is good. There's frost on the pumpkin this morning. Up next more experiments with color on plates. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
