Thanks for popping in. Just a quickie before I go open the kiln! Always exciting when the door opens. Did the glaze work? Did the pots hold? Did anything explode? And this time, did that reglaze work? Mmmm… More will be revealed.
It’s been a day of clearing the decks, putting everything away from yesterday’s TV show 2-4pm. Those two hours always go by so fast! I hope you enjoyed the demos anyway. I was certainly pretty wiped out today. Don’t ping back like I used to.
I was just about to throw away some tester scraps I had made when putting the new Ginkgo stamps through their paces, and I thought, Hang on! There’s art in them thar scraps!
So I chopped ’em up!
Even this one, where I was testing the colours has got life in it!
See? What looks like scraps can actually be rather lovely when you chop it up. Now I just have to decide which words to add, and to turn them into cards.
But I think I’ll sleep on that. Or of course, you could make 1,2,3,4 suggestions below – one for each chopped topper here….
AND WE COULD HAVE A CHEEKY LITTLE GIVEAWAY!!!
Then all those arty thinkers who make 4 suggestions will go into a hat and we’ll pull out not one but FOUR lucky random winners. Those not one but 4 lucky winners will each receive ONE of these cards, finished by myself.
Oh. And a £20 Clarity gift voucher too.
There. That’s sweet. And well worth putting your thinking caps on. Have a good look at the Ginkgo pieces below , and the space available, and then decide which word stamp or sticker will go well.
Right. Tea’s made, Dave’s waiting. It’s always a special little ceremony when we open that huge heavy kiln door….wish us luck!!
