millefleurs























I've made a second flowered garden cushion; I think I'm going to call this series 'Millefleurs', after the millefleur tapestries which I really admire.

country life

















I've spend some time in the countryside, it always feels good;
working with clay gives a good feeling too :)
these small jars are not really worth to show, but I do it anyway
they still need to be baked & glazed

drinking bees again, they're so funny!

about bees

















bees need to drink once in a while; an upside sinc bucket with a little water is fine as a watering place so they can't drown

play
























we went to our first ceramic class today and had a good time, but our 'creations' need to be fired and glazed yet, so I can't show anything now;
the painted pebbles come from a 70's craft book
and the beetle on top is a Oiceoptoma thoracicum, aka red breasted beetle

sweet dreams :)

rainy sunday





























I went to the flea market in the city park this morning, despite the heavy downpours,
but it was worth cause I'm happy with the bird :)
For the rest of the day stayed inside, browsing Leslie Williamsons latest book Modern Originals.
you can order it at Atelier Solarshop and also Handcrafted Modern, which I like even more.
also check out her blog for more sales outlets

good night & sweet dreams!
