Laugh a Lot Pottery Jackies Art Jewelry Fused Glass

I finally spent 2-1/2 days in my pottery studio...working on my own stuff! Hooray! I made covered butter dishes with a variety of knobs: butter churns, cats and flowers and two with "I am the Bread of Life" stamped on the side and a loaf of bread for the knob. I also made bowls and a large plate with "laugh a lot" stamped in the center...I really like how they turned out. I also made ice cream bowls, business card holders and pencil holders. Now I grant you they are not out of the bisque kiln! It is fun to have pottery in progress.

We had a week with our grandkids who live in Minnesota. We were so busy having fun - tea parties, ice skating, making art, playing the Wizard of Oz. Little Jacob, one year old, was Toto the dog...but he didn't know it! I was sad to see them leave!

My art students have started some stone carving projects. They are really just using rasps and files, but we are studying Michelangelo so I wanted them to have some sort of stone experience. I have lots of stone scraps from my own projects.

Take care...spring is on the way (I think!)

About Me

My photo
North Dakota, United States
Born and raised in Williston, North Dakota. Degrees in Occupational Therapy (never chose to work in the field) and Visual Arts. Married for 33 years to a super wonderful guy, three daughters - all three are talented, educated, contributing, beautiful members of our great big world. I am so proud of them...they are my best accomplishment to date! I love to make art and teach about it, too. An etsy friend recently shared this quote with me from St. Francis of Assisi: "He who works with his hands is a laborer, he who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman, he who works with his hands, his head and his heart is an artist." I think it is a wonderful statement!
