Clay Play . . .

I ENJOYED attending a “Making A Mug” class last night at the
Robin Nidelcheff Studio


There were five of us, plus Robin the instructor.
We received instruction, flattened the clay, discussed designs and got busy creating!


Here is my piece . . .
My “mug” may become a vase . . . I decided on no handle . . . so a vase or a “both hands mug!”
Excited to see it after it is fired and glazed . . .
I can see flowers and/or greens in it already though . . .

Friend Donna’s looked wonderful . . .

Mugs will be fired during the week
and we will add the glaze next week.

Brousing through the studio was great fun.
i found a few items that might have to come home with me.
Like this piece . . .

some nice things wherever I looked . . .



I received one of Robin’s pieces at Christmas . . . beautiful deep red glaze, wonderful design.
I placed the plate with some 70’s Audubon flower and bird templates . . . and I do like the look . . .

Stepping out, trying something a bit new, feels like good health to me.
I love being surrounded by the arts . . . and love participating too . . .

’til next time . . .
love

Hello Lynne, the clay play sounds like a fun time. Your vase/mug is pretty. I like the fern impressions? All the clay pieces are beautiful. Enjoy your day and week ahead.

I assuming from the look of the studio that you hand made your mugs. I still have a vase I made a hundred years ago.

We went to a studio to throw pots last year and it was so fun.

Enjoy you vase/mug.

You find the best things to do. I think your vase/mug will be awesome. Can't wait to see the finished product. My daughter actually loves both of her handleless mugs.

Beautiful! i've never did pottery. One of sis-in-laws did her specialization on pottery.

That sounds like fun and I love what you did with the imprints. Be sure to show it to us when it is glazed and fired! How fun to do something new!

By the Way, I see you have moved onto pop up commenting! Thank you. I would hate to stop visiting your blog.

I've been on blog break but plan to return real soon.

Your mug/vase looks wonderful - and also like a lot of fun! I also really like the way you are displaying the little plate with the audubon cards. You have an artistic flair with your decor!

Beth at PlantPostings said...

How fun! Your mug/vase and all the others are inspiring! I really need to sign up for a workshop. Peter @ The Outlaw Gardener just posted about a workshop he taught on stained glass garden flower stakes. Looks like so much fun!

bj said...

I love these places...I haven't made a piece of pottery but I've tried painting some...not too good, either. I have not a lick of talent in that department. Can't draw or paint...sew, nope...I can cook...and I can make my house look pretty to my eyes...but thats about it.
Hope things are good in your world, Lynn oxo

Hi there! I am a young, Generation Z gardener. I recently started a blog about gardening in college. My first posts are on vermicomposting. I would appreciate if you would check it out and give me feedback. dormlifegardening.blogspot.com

Curtains in My Tree said...


I have never done that and i'll put that on my list now that i'm retired

bj said...

Hello Lynne....I have missed you. I see it's been awhile since you posted..hope things are ok.
We have a Clay Cafe here that we can choose pieces to paint but don't know of a place where we can actually make a piece from clay. Bet this was fun

NanaDiana said...

Lynne- I didn't have a direct email to you but wanted to thank you for leaving me a comment on my blog. I gave up sugar and white flour on Feb 1st and, after detoxing, I feel SO much better -not nearly as achy AND I don't crave something sweet every minute like I did before I gave the sugar up. Good luck to you- xo Diana

It was so nice to see you back posting Lynne to Nana Diana

Your work is beautiful. Nice change of art. I will be back to see the finishing touches as you go along. I am back puttering around after two knee replacements. Unfortunalley my dear Specialist who did my operations. Was taken away from us all. This January. A Rig Jackknifed. In half hour he was gone.
