Brook Trout Love - Part II

The Brook Trout Vase is finished!!!  I couldn't be happier with the results, it really came together well.  I worried the underglaze's wouldn't blend or survive the high temperature of the kiln, leaving it discolored...I worried for nothing.

There will be a lot more carving and sculpting in the future.  Currently, I'm carving a wooden three foot high seahorse in high relief for a custom home on Mount Desert Island, Me.  This piece will take a few months to complete.  I am working on it in my spare time and having fun with it! I'll post photo's later of that, but for now, the most recent pottery pieces out of the kiln....

The Luminaries are ready for summer, are you?  I sure am....here it is the first day of Spring and we have another foot of fresh snow....someone needs to go ground hog hunting!  These luminaries will dress up any room or outdoor patio area and look great during the day, like a fresh bouquet.  In the evening just flip the switch to the battery operated tea light and watch the bouquet change color while casting a soft glow.  Battery operated tea lights offer a carefree and safe alternative to wax burning candles.  They come in a variety of colors and are very inexpensive.
