Normally I would not have settled for plain white, but the picture of these candle holders with red Christmas candles popped into my head as I was contemplating glazes. Wouldn't that make a nice grouping? If someone bought all three, that is.
Rolled these out yesterday. This is not my usual clay. It has a rich dark color which cannot be appreciated because of the fluorescent lighting in this picture. The finished plaque on the left is how these should end up looking. If I'm going to make more of these I'll have to hurry. The dogwood leaves are turning and soon they will be too brittle to press into the clay.
I'm about to put the knobs on these cookie stamps. The bottom shapes are the bisque fired forms I use to make these. Thought I'd get stocked up for Christmas. Making these doesn't exactly push my creative button anymore, but people tell me they enjoy using them. Plus, the cookies are really good.
