SINCE THIS LOCKDOWN is lasting longer than originally anticipated . . .
I have decided to move from doing vases only. From what I have learned around how pottery has helped my PTSD, my plans to help manage the stress and anxiety on lockdown are simple: I will continuing to make a new item for each day.
I aim to continue updating this post each day with my latest lockdown thing I made! (I am looking for ideas! Submit what you think I should make here!)
You can also see finished vases (ie not raw clay) here
Day 22 – A pillar candleholder
‘Making something each day keeps the anxiety away’.
Let me know what you think of the latest creation(s) in the comments below.
Love all your creations!! just beautiful!
Thank you for your kind comment, Mico! I appreciate and hope you are keeping well.
The candle holder is a great addition to your immense wealth of creativity.
Thank you Jane! How very kind! I have made a few in the past as well which you can see here if you are curious: https://rakupottery.ca/2021/04/13/life-in-colour/ I hope you are well!
What a great idea!
If I didn’t create something every day I would go mad. It doesn’t have to be a story or a poem. It can be a meal or a picture, or even a post! I like the vase on day 10 but we haven’t anywhere to put vases except one, on the dining table. All my shelves are covered in books and the window silis have curtains that would knock them off.
Someone gave us a beautiful red glass vase for our ruby wedding anniversary and it’s still in its box. Maybe a flower pot would make a change? We have a chamber pot that had herbs in it but no holes in the bottom so it wasn’t too successful.
Thanks Julie! These vases are great in groups with other things as well, no need for flowers or anything https://rakupottery.ca/2021/04/13/life-in-colour/ perhaps putting out your red glass vase in a group of vases could be nice?
All windowsills already covered with pot plants and boxes of paperwork. All bookshelves choked with books. Table covered with letters. Not a spare inch for a vase, especially a delicate one!
I think the candleholders are my favorites.
Thank you Michele! So glad you like them! Thank you for all your support 🙏 I hope you are keeping well today and have a great week coming up!
You are welcome. Thank you. Same to you. 😀
