#ClarityOpenDayFestival – Barb’s Gone Pottery! (Giveaway #4)
Good to have your company again on this fine Saturday morning. Day 2 of our Clarity Open Day Festival! What a great evening we had yesterday evening at the Pyjama Party Craftalong! What a fun way to spend a Friday evening! Definitely to be repeated!
The Jackanory – What’s the Story – is also hitting the spot with many of you. It’s as I said in the SHAC-SHAC on Wednesday: remembering the story behind something – even as banal as a coffee cup or a little bowl – adds flavour to your day. At a time when we are all so starved of outside stimulus because of Covid restrictions, we can do a lot to brighten our personal Life Tapestries by looking for stories in the things around us.
So how about a little, very personal giveaway, attached to a very personal story, to kickstart our #ClarityOpenDayFestival today?
So what’s the Jackanory? Read on…
How did I start pottery? Well, I mentioned in the SHAC on Wednesday that I had simply wanted to treat my friends Debby and Gill to a fun day out. They had come all the way from Texas to celebrate our wedding in June 2018, so I planned a Pottery Raku Day for the 3 of us before they returned to the States. It was brilliant! There’s a super Clay Studio near where we live…
Anyway, long story short: I was hooked. Signed up for a class in the September, went to every Raku day going, and every throwdown Saturday I could.
Then Covid hit, and Eunice had to close her doors. Poor woman. It is almost impossible to keep a business going if you can’t open your doors! She did though, to the best of her ability and given the circumstances, with zoom classes. I joined in too, to support, and because I really missed our pottery classes. So much so, that Dave and I decided to build a little pottery studio in the garage, so I could keep calm and carry on!
Well, I’ve been making loads of bowls and tiles and this n that. Building a proper little stash, ready for when the kids come home, so we can – yep – have a RAKU Party!! They have to quarantine for 10 days when they get home from the States, so why not learn how to throw a pot, eh?! Perfect opportunity!
But I have finished a few too. Glazing is a science!
So after all that, how about a little Pottery giveaway, of a few of my pieces made during Lockdown? 6 little pieces to go to 6 homes….
All you have to do is guess what this is going to be and write your answer below! You can suggest as many things as you like, just keep it clean !!! All correct answers will go in a prize draw and 6 will be pulled out randomly.
Now. Do you want to hear the best part of this story ?!? Look at these masterpieces!
Fabulous or what?! And now guess who made these…
Yep. Debby and Gill, all the way over in Texas. Can you believe that they too got hooked?! Now isn’t that a wonderful story?
I hope you are enjoying the #ClarityOpenDayFestival! Check out what Grace is up to over on the Clarity Matters blog today! Very cool. And the Design Team will be story telling and inspiring all over our Facebook pages Clarity Worldwide and Groovi Worldwide!
Teamwork make the dream work.
Love and Hugs,
PS. Recognise anybody here? Yep, even in Brooklyn New York, this Pottery is catching on! Grace and her fella Mark. In training for the Quarantine Throwdown when they get home!!

A beautiful butterfly.
I think its a brush holder or a fruit basket
I think maybe a cheeseboard. Really enjoyed yesterday evening. Thank you to everyone who made it possible. Hope you aren’t too exhausted Barbara.
Paper templates on clay ready to be cut out to make a slab pot
A planter or bon bon dish
Wow thats brilliant and the kids too! So happy for you Barb getting to see your babies soon. I think its going to be a shac shac plaque or a Potter one. It should say visit Barbs many talents here. Or it could be a place mat, for the dinner table. Barb have you made the cats designer pottery feeding bowls yet! Oh so excited to see what it will be. I could keep guessing all day and would love to win one of your pots. Love & hugs Tina
I reckon its going to be a flower basket
I thought it was going to be a cheese or bread board!
Vase for beautiful wild grasses.
An eye shaped vase. Love the experiments with glazes. Particularly like the ‘blotchy’ one😂
A decorative frisbee?!
Had a brilliant time last night and very happy with my two cards even in daylight! Xx
Well…it looks like a waistcoat dress pattern, but I think it could be an oval vase-type pot. Not sure what the rectangle at the top is though – decoration?
Sorry I haven’t got through last night’s event – Bendycat bounced onto the computer keyboard – and he brought a mouse with him!! (poor critter did not survive – the mouse, not Bendycat – we threw the remains into the wildflowers for the owls)
PS Loving the Festival.
My guess is a fruit basket.
First thoughts are an arty decorated wall clock.
Antipasti platter. Could go on forever guessing.
It will be beautiful and made by your fair hands. Good luck to everyone 💓
Fabulous pieces. I miss my pottery. made some happy stuff in my time – children’s clocks, castle etc.
I think maybe cheese or salad dish. Or an Artist’s palette.
Morning, hope you are not too tired after last night….lovely evening,
i think if those are the only pattern pieces it could be a butterfly.
I think a type of vase but can’t remember the name of them xxx
I reckon some kind of basket shape pot – maybe a brush holder. Maybe a vase.
Looks a bit like a pattern for the beginnings of a handbag or a handbag shaped-ish planter/vase. Exciting stuff this pottery making, would love to have a go.
Hi.What beautiful pieces of pottery, and practise makes perfect! I think it might be a planter!
An urn/pot. The rectangle is the base, the wing things are the sides and the little thingy cut in half are the handles. Haha or maybe not. Lovely designs by everyone.x
I’m thinking a ceramic basket 🤔 x
I try a new craft every year and pottery is on my list so as soon as lock down is over watch this space!
I think a jug.
Artist’s palette shaped clock?
Great arty time yesterday…thank you all!
That’s so exciting Grace and Mark are pottering too 👏👏🌸
I had so much fun last night, I can’t thank you enough.
I think it’s a fancy teapot, knowing how much you love your tea
I’m not sure of a name for what I think you’re constructing; maybe vase ( boat shaped) or could be a fruit bowl. I think the rectangle is the base for the two large shaped pieces (narrower side down) and that there should be two of the petal shapes to join the arched part of the shaped pieces as two ends.
Thoroughly enjoyed the craft along. I was tired just from watching, you must have been exhausted once the adrenaline rush died down. There was a definite sense of community. Fabulous.
My first thought was a butterfly wall plaque but the wings would be too big to hold their weight and too straight edged I think (looking at the one we have!) Perhaps a Japanese tea bowl ? I’ve looked at some pics of those. I’ll have another think and might come back.
Well done to Grace and her fella for having a go – they’ll be taking over when they get to yours ! And what a story introducing your friends and starting them on their pottery journey.
Going to see son no 2 and his family today – not seen them since I’m not sure when (we’ve seen him on an odd occasion but not the rest of them). Have a good weekend, looking forward to seeing what is posted. Enjoyed last night’s craft along, I did some picot cutting while watching. Loved what you did though. X
Wow, that’s a tricky one! All I can think is some kind of vase, with the two big pieces joining together somehow to form the main body. I don’t think that’s right though. I wish I knew the correct answer as I would dearly love to enter this giveaway, your pottery is so beautiful!
It looks like the face mask pattern I have been making for the family
I think this is a handbag / purse shaped bowl or shell shaped salt holder ,enjoyed last night in my pjs xx
Tea pot ,wild guess 😊 have a smashing time with your family what a wonderful hobby for you all xxx
I think it is going to be a jug. I do hope that I have guessed right as I would love one of your pots, they are just beautiful, I would be honoured to own one!
Ha ha I have just tried to construct it on Procreate. I initially thought a angled vase until I did this.
Now I think it’s going to be a bowl, maybe a pasta or salad bowl 👏🏻
Whatever it is I’m sure it will be fantastic. I don’t think your capable of doing anything less. 😘
What a wonderfull evening yesterday, I really enjoyed it!
I think it might be a small bowl to put some Marzipan in. Quit handy during a pyjama party 😀!
Great pottery. Love the blue glazed designs just my colours. Latest piece – angel fish platter? it’s the little fish mouth top right! I’m sure it will be great whatever it is.
A cheese board?
Thanks for a great evening yesterday! Xx
Another thought, milk jug or sugar bowl or enough for both ? Cereal bowl ? Or a nice shaped vase. Now, wonder what I’ve missed? X
I forgot to put tea pot, you might be making the whole set ?!
Hello Barb, love all the pottery items you have got stacked and ready. Lovely to see that you have inspired your friends and family to take up pottery too. Debby and Gill’s items are fab, can’t wait to see what Grace and Mark come up with too. Your latest creation I think is going to be some sort of wall decoration. Take care and stay safe everyone. Bx
No idea what it will be so have to wait and see. Thank you for the craft-a-long Barbara. It was great seeing Erik and Ragnor and Dave. Haven’t they grown, almost too much for Dave to carry both (and open the door to get out).
I missed most of the first project because my laptop decided it didn’t want to play. I have everything ready when I can rewind. I did join in the love but it definitely needs more work.
Have a good day xx
Artist palette or cheese board whatever it turns out to be it will be lovely, loved last night was brilliant Thanks Barbara
a posy bowl, or a lamp shade, or a pot for sponges in the shac. I would love to be lucky enough to own one of your beautiful pieces Barbara to add to my shac Jackanory.
lots of love
Fabulous evening last night. Thank you, Barbara, Paul and Grace.
I think it’s going to be a vase for dried flowers.
Think it may be a shell shaped vase.
Fabulous evening last night. Thank you, Barbara, Paul and Grace.
I think it’s going to be a vase for dried flowers. Would be lovely to win.
I went to pottery classes many years ago when my children were small. Really enjoyed it but never really mastered the wheel!
I think Barbara is making a napkin holder
A cheese platter or bread board, an art palette, an unusual picture frame. Whatever you end up making it will look brilliant in my home xx
Beautiful pieces you have made, I think this is going to be a fruit bowl.
My guess knowing how much you enjoy your tea is a teapot 🫖
A world clock – loving you clarity festival weekend
A letter rack or vase?
What fun you will have with all the beautiful pots when the kids come home. Hope the quarantine requirements are reduced or removed by the time they get here so to ou can make the most of the precious time.
A vase or bowl? Maybe a jug or special teapot? Whatever you’ve created Barbara, the joy you get from your pottery is great to share!
Had a good look at the pieces with my Bro, he’s really getting into this art stuff, he’s been having his first stamp sesh this morning. He’s decided your making axes for Eric and Ragnar!!
He’s so glad to be home 3 months in hospital was quite enough for him, now he’s stuck with me.
Enjoyed last night looking forward to many more.
A plant holder (think it’s called a jardiniere?)
It will be beautiful whatever 🥰
A “Handbag”. well why not?
Marzipan platter or paint mixing palette! Had a ball last night thank you xx
Love the tiles especially the Chinese Latterns
Your pottery is lovely, Barbara – very classy! I think your latest make could be a letter rack, possibly to hold the lovely postcards? Or could it be an open- ended basket to lay breadsticks in? Whatever it is, I’m sure it will be beautiful.
Brilliant night last night really enjoyed it, don’t know why I’m thinking this but could it be a jug 🤷♀️
How lovely that a treat for someone else turned into such a great hobby – karma at its best! A butterfly shaped bowl or wall hanging. Something butterfly shaped anyway. Could be completely wrong, will keep thinking, would love to win a Barb original piece. I enjoyed the first Craftalong last night, thank you! Need to catch up with the second. Take care xxx
Hey Barb. I think it will be a vase of bread basket.
A Vase. You are so talented, don’t know where you get the time, you are always doing something. Take care
What a fantastic pyjama party last night, brilliant way to spend an evening.
I think it is going to be a bon bon dish.
Well this is a good one Barbara, pottery jigsaw!!! So I think the rectangle is the base, the two wing things are the sides and the leaf shape the ends. When I put that together in my head, it looks like an oval shaped, vase container fruit bowl vessel.if I give loads of ideas one of them might be right hahahaha 😆.
Whatever it is, because it’s you Barbara, it will be stunning. X
I think it’s going to be a vase with shaped sides and curved ends.
Loved the FB Pyjama get together thanks Barb xx
A flower vase.
A wide-necked pot or vase made with 9mm thick slabs of clay?
Perhaps a leaf shaped flattish dish.A stand for your pepper salt and vinegar. Maybe a cheese board to compliment your other lovely table pieces you have made. You are doing well with your new hobby. Thank you for last night really enjoyed your company. Will miss the cherries I usually buy on the way home from the open days. Nora x
I think you’re going to build a vase of some sort and it will look great! Enjoyed last night’s party- hope you had a lie-in this morning to recover!!
A lovely pot to hold all your Pergamano tools 😃 xxx
Could be a letter rack or toast rack
Loving all the pottery pieces and that everyone is catching the bug! I think it’s going to be something with a spout – maybe an indoor watering can? X
A stand for a pot maybe or a shaped vase x
A stand for a pot maybe or a shaped vase x
A large mix mat or painters pallet. Or a buffet plate to hold your food and drink. We are probably all wrong and it’s a teapot.
I think an artist paint palette 😄 x
Loved last nights PJ party – thanks Barbara. You do make me smile and laugh- such a tonic in the present climate.
I think it might be a fan shaped vase. The rectangle is the base the leaf shape (would need 2) the sides to connect the larger pieces together. Looking forward to seeing the finished product. Xxx
An art deco wall sconce sliced with spaces to let the candle light through.
Es könnte ein Korb werden.
Bitte alle gesund bleiben.
something that will look good on my shelf
I think it will be an Art Deco styled tea light/candle holder with one of the fabulous Clarity designs cut into each side. The poppy one or the snow drops would look fab.
I guess it will be a vase.
The story is wonderful. Seems that everyone around you gets hooked as well 🙂
I reckon a bread “basket”, fruit bowl come salad/pasta bowl for when you get all your family together for the Raku party…now what an fabulous event you have planned!
I am thinking a wide mouthed vase the rectangle will be the base and two of the ovals for the sides. Will make a lovely vase for grasses or reeds.
Look forward to finding out what it will be.
Enjoying the pyjama party this morning as it was too late for me last night.
Thanks for all you do Barbara.
Having re-constructed it from my co-op receipt, I think you’re making a flower pot.
Had a brilliant time last night, couldn’t join in this time as we are moving in a few weeks and everything is packed away. But laughed and learnt and I can’t wait to play and recreate the cards once we have moved. So glad you are going to see your kids soon, it will be a wonderful quarantine together.
I think your next pot is going to be either a fruit basket or a vase, whatever it is I’m sure it will be lovely and someone will be lucky to win one of your beautiful makes xx
A beautiful butterfly with no Ariels 😊
I think it’s an oval flower vase x loving the crafty festival x
My first thought was a fruit bowl, but going by the 9mm measuring stick, I think it would be too small, so maybe some type of spice dish. Maybe the rectangular piece would be for the name of the spice?
I think it may be a plant pot, vase or fruit bowl.
The festival is great.
maybe a lovely fan shaped vase. last night was so good going to watch again as i now have the my parcel. margaret bird
I think now that it is too small for all of above I said, so perhaps some kind of storage for something very small or pen holder or if you maybe adding a clip on end of wire – a photo holder. 🙂
Thanx for a great evening – it was very satisfying to actually complete 2 projects……. Now the pottery challenge – I cut out pieces of scrap paper and it looks like it could be a vase or flowerpot of some kind. (The wing bits are sides and the 2 oval bits are the ends, and is the rectangle the bottom of the bowl? ). If the sides are pinched in a bit, the bowl becomes a ‘square-round’. All just speculation – it will be an amazing BG Original when finished! It was fun playing with my paper pattern anyway! Enjoy your day Barb (((hugs)))
Sweetie jar. Takes me back to school days (and black and white tv). I was told no good at so you can do pottery. I loved it. Thanks for the good memories.

Love to see your pottery, so clever. I think this could be a boat shaped vase/desk tidy/pen holder/brush holder/thingy 💗
A very versatile basket shaped pot.😊 xx
Fabulous evening Barbars thank you to you annd all concerned,
Think it might be a fruit bowl
I think it is going to be a pot pourri bowl.
A curved top vase. Thanks for last night, it was the best pj party I’ve been to. xx
Tea cup. With a leaf base and ultra modern impossibly to use chunky handle.
Thank you for last night it was fun.
I think it’s going to be a beautiful scenic vase !
Loved last night Tkx for the PJ Party
A beautiful vase..
I think it will be a beautiful flower basket or a posy basket think they called, However handmade and very unique love the items u r making well done too u keep up the good work and posting pics love to see what uve been upto xx
What a brilliant evening last night even though I didn’t have any of the ingredients (finances aren’t what they used to be) except the ink pads I throughly enjoyed it and hope there will be another party in the future. Thank you so much to all concerned. As I never win anything I’m going to take a wild guess that it is going to be some kind of platter or plate. xxx
I think it is going to be a vase, with a flat rectangular bottom & the petal shape – need another one for the 2 sides although it would need to be squared off to match the rectangular base or the petal shapes will join the 2 larger pieces & it will all sit on the rectangular base.
Love the fact that you love of pottery has been passed on to your friends & Grace + her Mark. I am sure you are going to have a great time when they come home experimenting with the Raku method of firing. Look forward to seeing the results.
Love the story and the continuing thread that you weave through friends and family ! Your pottery is fab !
My guess is some sort of vase/planter /basket .
Or some sort of plaque for the wall either .
Was going to suggest a type of vase but not enough pattern pieces.
A very large, heavy and stiff bow tie maybe.
A lovely base or bowl
A lovely elegant vase or bowl
Maybe a beautiful butterfly or a curved vase, it’s difficult to say. Loved the craft along last night, hope that there will be a repeat 😂🤣x
Hmm it could end up a TEAPOT maybe? – I think its wonderful so many getting into pottery. I dare not even try as I know, I would love it, but I must not take on another hobby, I dont have time to do what I already love doing! X
I think you’re going to make a decorative shaped bowl/something that would hold fruit. Maybe even with some oasis in the bottom it could be used as a centre piece for a table with fresh flowers in. I’m sure it will look amazing when put together. Thank you for a lovely evening last night. So much more entertaining than the football
I think it might be a wide flat vase which will be fantastic for flower arranging. I would love to own one of you fantastic makes.X
I, too, think it’s going to be a vase!
A basket for dried flower arrangement
Really enjoying the virtual weekend.
I think this could be either a butterfly/ moth or fruit bowl.
Enjoyed last night, but only watched. Have to order LOVE today so I will watch back and have go. I guess a large fruit bowl with winged handles, or a large plaque with wings for the Shac Shack.
Fabulous evening spent with you and the Clarity family around the world. You must be exhausted today. Not sure how you made it all the way through but sure glad you were able to. Keep looking at the picture trying to figure out what it might be. Think it might be a beautiful serving bowl. Or could it be a big gift holder for tickets for a cruise for the the family again. Another adventure all together when things get a bit more normal. Noticed the paper you used is from a cruise brochure. Hugs from Canada 🇨🇦
Hmm… that tests our spatial awareness! I wanted to say urn, because I know you’ll be making up your own jokes, but instead I’m going to say fluted vase. I saw these at the end of the pyjama party, and they’re all beautiful. Can’t wait to see what comes out of the potty quarantine!
Difficult this one !
Thank you for the pj party, my kind of party.
I think it is something to hold your pencils in the shac, or somewhere to hide your marzipan chocolates….well a few of them anyway.
A little ornamental trinket basket
I think it’s a milk jug. Still catching up on last night’s shenanigans as I had to leave early but enjoying the pyjama party on my own
A little bowl xoxo
I think it is going to be a clock to countdown to the time that your kids come home.
Eliptical vase, slab built.
I have no clue! I don’t think it’s gonna join up somehow, lol 😂 My guess is a fruit bowl, only because of the leaf shape (could be from an apple)! Thanks for last night, great to see so many join in. Good luck everyone x
A bowl for sweeties, in particular marzipan chocolates 🤣 xxxx
Beautiful vase or a butterfly clock .
A lovely little basket
My first thought was a jug, I thought there was one on Pottery Throw Down with a special name, or maybe I am making that up lol.
Good luck everyone, who wouldn’t want to receive a “special” present handmade by Barbara xx
Beautiful pottery work! I’m guessing it’s going to be some type of bowl or vase. Can’t wait to see the finished product!
Is it an Ikebana vase for flower arranging?
I’m grabbing at straws here ain’t I!!!!!!!
Hi barb I’m going to say an axe x
Art Deco vase / pot
Hi there, I reckon it’s a bit heavy for a hat and too small for a boat to paddle off in so I reckon a fruit bowl. Your pottery is amazing as are the things that have been made by your friends and Grace and Mark. Grace is definitely a chip off the old block! Talented girl. going for a cuppa now before I finish prep for tomorrow. Lots of love. Hxx
Loved the pyjama party last night (both of them!). Not really got any idea what your masterpiece will be, but I’ll go for cheeseboard/serving platter. I’m really intrigued to find out…
I think it’s a planter which will hang against a tree or a fence. Thank you so much for last night xx
I think it will be a fat friend vase?!
A lovely fruit bowl
Basket with handle.
Could be a jug (which would also serve as a nice vase …).
A platter for a ploughmans🧀
Lovely pottery! Maybe it could be a canoe shaped bowl or planter ?
My guess is an artist’s palate 🥰
Enjoying sharing the weekend with everyone. I think I’m wearing out my stylus on my iPad! 😜💕💕💕
Just looked again at the clay…..now I’m thinking a jug 🥰
Think it might be a butterfly 🦋 xx
A cheese board or a paint pallet
A cheese board or a paint pallet are my guesses. Would love to give pottery a go.
The other thing it reminds me of is an Art deco style jug or teapot?
I had to do some pottery googling and discovered pottery is not just throwing on a
Wheel. Could this be a fluted basket of some sort with one more of the leaf shapes being cut out of last bit of the clay? Will be interested to see whatever it is.
Thanks for opportunity to
Win an original BG. X
A sweetie dish x
What an absolutely fabulous prize – I’d love to have a barb original!! Bea has a slate vase from way back and loves it. My guess is a teapot or jug as I’m guessing the rectangle will be moulded into a handle and a spout fashioned from one end?? NO? I’ll think some more…….
Loved the craft along festival last night, thank you to everyone concerned.
Well I must admit to being rather stumped on this teaser!
So a few random thoughts –
Would be chuffed to pieces to own a Barbara Gray original.
Good luck everyone x
I’m thinking it’s going to be a basket of some sort !
I think a basket or an odd shaped vase…ha ha
Whatever it is it will be gorgeous. I think perhaps a flower pot shaped vase. Keep doing what you love xx
I think it could be a bowl for bread rolls etc, for the table, when having soup. Or first thought was a fruit bowl/boat. It will be very stylish whatever it is…wonderful prize to win. Maybe a letter rack!
Could it be a….
Letter rack or a
Napkin holder or a
Pot to hold your spot on sponges
Having sewn a few over the last 18 months it looks like a facemask pattern, but it can’t be that, a bit heavy on the nose and ears 🙂
A beautiful Canna Lilly x
A basket vase for holding SHAC pencils. Loving all the stories x
A raku party certainly sounds like fun.
I’d guess at is being a dish/bowl/vase
With maybe the rectangular piece being the base and the fan shapes the sides.
I think it’s going to be a handbag shaped vase.
Your pottery is lovely.
A beautiful fluted bowl
Thanks for last night Barbara was great fun
I think maybe a vase?
I’m imagining a flower basket shaped slab pot. I so wish I had room for a pottery studio, but once I clear my garage (a mammoth task), I have a shiny wood lathe (my xmas present from 2019!)to set up so that I can take up wood turning. The pandemic managed to halt progress on my new hobby….. and then I discovered the SHAC and I got sort of side tracked…lol…
I’m thinking jug or an arty Barbara cheese platter.
All of you have made some beautiful pottery pieces, love the mottled blue bowl and the tiles, now they’d look great in my kitchen as it’s blue and yellow.
A holder for an eraser or pen.
stencil brush holder
A jug with oval base and very thin pouring lip and handle side.
A Fan or Shell Vase xx
Wow what a giveaway..
I think it could be..
I love hearing about your pottery journey, a real passion project, and given it’s so personal I think it’s amazing that you choose to share this with us too.
Hmm -sat and stared at those pieces for a while, trying to 3D them in my mind. My best guess is a ‘vase’ – the rectangle is the base, the large pieces the front and back, and I think the petal shape could be an insert for the sides. I’m excited to find out what it’s going to be, whether I’m right or not!
I think perhaps it will be a basket shape for bread rolls perhaps or as a vase. Your work is lovely. I’ve tried pottery & although I enjoyed it I struggled with the preparing the clay (knocking out) due to neck & shoulder damage
A jug or a vase, love your Potter Barbara.
Somewhere to put makeup sponges or brushes for crafting.
🤔 difficult one. Think it will be open ended so going for letter rack/ napkin holder / Groovi plate holder etc, although I think the blue line on one of the big pieces is a clue that you might cut along this line …… although that hasn’t helped me decide what it will be 😂
Really enjoyed the PJ party last night, I was just watching and enjoying your company and chatting to friends on WhatsApp who were also watching and enjoying the session. How lovely the pottery bug is extending to friends and family, it’s going to be lovely to have Grace and Mark in quarantine with you and having fun. I think the pattern is for a vase, I’m probably wrong but I’m intrigued to find out what it will be.
Love Diane xxx
Wine holder possibly
I haven’t read all the ideas but my thoughts on seeing this yesterday(Saturday morning) was a flower basket.
Some form of planter for the garden? I’m intrigued to see the end result
Some special feeding bowls for the cats?
A boat ?!
My first thought always goes to Christmas so I think it could be a Santa sleigh.
Lamp – just reread your blog and there might be a clue there !
Jus realised I’m
Beginning to sound desperate! 😹😜😹🤦♀️😻
Maybe a tea light holder? Looking forward to seeing the result at the weekend
Ok – round 2. I think it could be a garden wall plaque (maybe a moth or butterfly), or maybe an abstract clock? Otherwise I haven’t a clue! I’ll look forward to the big reveal at the weekend x
Strawberry basket or a egg basket or a gravy boat
Had another think maybe a gravy boat or sauce boat.
Could it be to put your post in. A letter rack?
After reading your blog today am I allowed a second guess? I wonder if you are going to make a flower? Perhaps a rose? It’s worth another try.
Love Diane xx
Hi Barbara I think that the ceramic template is going to be either a lamp base or a ceramic lamp shade .
It also reminded me of a lamp my mum made when I was a little girl
She made a little lamp from clam shells and she put a light fitting in the middle .
probably would look really naff today but I loved it cos it was made by my late mum
I also remember seeing ash trays made from clam shells 🤢
Best wishes Jackie
Is it some sort of lantern/wall hanging? Maybe one of those ones that fix on the wall outside and you can put candles in them. X
Could it be a container for storing salt
Gravy boat .Really enjoy the clarity weekend
My first guess was a paint palette.
I think it will be a Gravy Boat, something you don’t see very often these days
