This week's promt in Our Beautiful World is
and it was chosen by me.
I guess I always loved
(heart made by Ifigenia, assistant ceramist at the workshop)
as I so often bought ceramic pieces and followed friends around the world in their endeavour with ceramics.
Like for example Paula Valentim of otchipotchi, whose work I adore and have some of her pieces like these lace stones.
Or her Christmas ornaments she so kindly gifted me with this Christmas!Atelier Stella's work and was so lucky to win a piece of hers some time ago.
I also love local ceramists' work like Polytimi's at Nafplion.And I am glad I have two of her candle holders.
Here are his famous tumblers used at bars for cocktails.
Here's an oil,vinegar,salt and pepper set.
So I decided to take lessons there and see if I can learn something.
It all started with a piece of clay!
I am so very proud of those two pieces.
I found it hard to work on.
And I only managed to make just one piece.
The tray was very easy to form
I then engraved a pattern, my favourite dragonfly.
And now it is waiting to be put in the kiln!
Till the end of the workshop year in June we will make some more smaller pieces and try various glazes! This has been a great experience for me and am looking forward to one more year in ceramics!
