Thank you for visiting artful embellishments. This is the third year for this blog and I am so happy to keep publishing. I started in 2011 and began with a quilt of the week, this lead to the leaf of the week for my newly designed paper tree that is located on the wall of my garage in 2012.......2013 is going to bring a lot of excitement and positive change. As a personal challenge for 2013, I plan on designing a artist trading card each week to be featured on the blog.
With so many interests, there will be quilting, art quilting, leaves (and more leaves), as well as experiments in thermofax screen printing, fabric dying, and tons of DIY recycle projects. I may even enter that altered fashion scene. To a happy and healthy 2013, may we all find happiness in those things we create....thank you for stoping by artful embellishments.

Ceramics Finale

Ceramics II came to a close. This was a fun class especially since we did our critique with everyone's pieces all at once. It is amazing what to see what you can accomplish in 15 weeks.  My pieces are up on top. My favorite are the VW bug, with it's junk yard weathered look and the small tiles in which I used thermofax screens. I will feature those separate at some point.

To the right is a view of the entire class!
 To the left are Tom's. He did some amazing pieces. My favorite is his baseball glove. He built a mold out of plaster and then cast the piece. For his first go at ceramics, he hit it out of the park and had the most interesting pieces in the class.
To the right are Ellen's fish. She has a water pond and plans to put these near her garden/pond.
We are off to use the wheel to "throw pots" on tuesday. Can't wait.
