Creating with the Family


IMG_2256
Part of my family was in town over the weekend and on Saturday we went to the Calendar Garden for a class in which we would create our own garden markers out of clay. This was the real deal—real pottery clay, real glaze, and it would be fired in a kiln by the artist who hosted the class. Sweet! I haven’t used real clay since high school and as I worked with the clay it all came back to me easily. Made me wish I had my own potting wheel and kiln!

My niece and nephew came along with me, my mom, and sister-in-law and they were good for the first bit but then their attention span turned elsewhere….playing!

The day was incredibly windy and we battled the breeze that came through the pavilion that we were working under.

All the kids wanted to do was run up and down the ramp in the little house that stores the seeds!

I have to wait a week for them to be fired and returned to us so the final product isn’t available yet. Hope they come out well!

    That is SO cool! I would love to do something like that with my family, but besides getting Tom and Gracie to paint pottery with me, it never happens. This is so inspiring!!
