tonight i am proud to present what my husband has been working on lately...
so i took the same class he is in now, Ceramics I, and picking up the wheel & throwing clay was
not easy for me at all, I'm more of a hand-building more detailed and organic shape kinda gal.
well the first time landon threw clay, he had no trouble- quickly caught on and i think he found
his little niche... as it is SO very obvious in the photos.
it's barely midterms and he already has a collection to fill up our shelves. i am in love with
every single piece he brings home and so proud of him.
i'm going to draw up some bowls and pots i want and have some custom work done...
he doesn't know that yet,
but i need some pretty fruit bowls and vases for spring flowers coming up. :)
yay i'm excited!
i had a little photo shoot with the pots today. check them out.
check out the beautiful red inside the vase, love it!
landon actually brought this home with a flower in it for me, so cute.
sheen & shine
so landon has been working lately on a big project for his ceramics class.
they are supposed to recreate something ancient [over 100 years old].
we found this awesome urn and fell in love with it quickly.
landon threw the pot and lid for it and brought it home to hand-build everything else.
and if hand-building is involved...
i obviously would be involved too :)
so we've been working on it together this weekend and it's been such a fun little activity for us.
we have a few more details and engravings to add in tonight and we are all set and done!
i can't wait to have this fired, glazed, and displayed in our home... not as a urn as an art piece :)
my little [buff] proud landon. :)
i'm so happy that he found a creative outlet for himself.
we say that when we are old and rich we will have a wheel & kiln for ourselves to play and create fun things on. i guess we will have to wait and see...
until then, landon will keep creating at school and i will keep taking photos of his creations
and display them in our home :)
PS. we just found out our wedding was featured on the Fabulously Wed blog.
go take a look!
