We were snowed in last week and we loved the days we got to spend with Daniel! He has started his second to last semester of his Master's Degree and gone nights doing school and homework. Everything was canceled and we just had time together!
A dream Daniel has had since High School is to someday own a kiln and a pottery wheel. We didn't think this was a possibility for a long while, but someone gave us a kiln this summer and Daniel found a wheel for a great price and we picked it up after Thanksgiving Break when we went down to Utah. He's quite artsy fartsy now and I love the things he's created! Not all of them have worked out after being fired in the kiln, but here are some of the things he's made:
He made plates for the kids to paint. We made stencils for them and glazed them last week. They love eating off of them!
He's made these gorgeous vases and dishes. I love the way they look un-glazed too. The clay is grayish, then when it is fired it turns white and I love it!
We had fun with the glazes! Daniel said the blue &red splotchy one looks like the sick witch on Sword and the Stone.
This is a project that I did for a Relief Society activity. It is our family tree. The tags have the names of our family tree members. I want to get their pictures on there too, eventually. The branch was pruned from our peach tree and I love it's perfect shape!
