Winter is coming! And if I needed any reminder, the weather here lately has provided it for me! Cold and snowy for $500, Alex! Sorry for the nerdy Jeopardy reference!
Many of you may have surmised that I am working on building up my pottery studio with the intention of creating a livelihood that I love. It’s a lot of work, but one of the things I enjoy most about it is developing new items that I hope people will appreciate having in their home.
Over the last few days I have been working on these pillar candle holders, and I am hoping they will be a hit! These two pieces have already gone through the bisque firing and are ready for glazing and the raku treatment!
If you choose these as a perk with the book, you can choose the colour!
I think these pieces have the potential to show off the effect of the raku glazing very nicely! And I will be making a very large one for my own home for the coffee table, but I have other plans for these two pieces!
As many of you know, my crowdfunding campaign for my new book is nearing the end. It’s been quite the journey and I am grateful to all those who have chosen to support it. As a final perk offering, I would like to offer one of these pillar candle holders, glazed in your choice of colour.
There are other opportunities to get a piece of pottery with the book. You can get a copy of the book with a Christmas ornament, Buddha necklace, a raku pottery owl, or even a vase that is in the book. Just 36 hours left! Of course you can also contact me here to buy any of these items without the book.
Some of the potential perks of crowdfunding, or you can buy them without the book!
Can you think of any items you would like to see me try to make out of clay and fire in raku? Keep in mind I can’t make anything that involves food and raku fire it, though I am open to making non-raku items. I would love to hear your ideas and suggestions, and who knows, you might see an idea of yours unfold here on this site in the coming months.
