 Due to the bad weather Dec 17. our potluck lunch and last class in 2013 have been canceled. Those were arranged at home for cerebration Christmas and New year.


I created those containers for use in Ikebana arrangement. Since I moved to 55and up community I  joined club activities once a week for ceramic class. It is fun to make something and can use it for flower arrangement.  Making ceramic need a lot of steps, from clay to become a piece, require couple of month to complete and it takes longer to paint a piece .   The club house provided kiln without wheel and hand is our only tool to mould for shape. let them dry and sand them, putting in kiln to burn for 8 hours. Second step is to brush color two or three times according to your design. It takes time to do this process, wait until it gets dry and put back to kiln for second time to burn.  You do the final touch with acrylic and your creation is complete.
