New Catalog Page

On The Wall (home décor)
clipart home sweet home

This page has 138 items and includes decorator plates, plaques, wall clocks, framed pictures, picture frames, ducks (plaques & hanging ducks) and other home décor items to hang on the wall. Also includes wind chimes, mobiles, hanging ashtrays & planters, coat racks, switch plates, and Christmas wreaths & plates. Pieces that take add-ons are listed separately.
Please check it out. Here’s the link: On the Wall

I would really appreciate feedback on this page. There are many items that do not have pictures, and a few where a picture of the mold is posted. We hope to update these posts as the pieces get poured and painted. This was a lot of typing with so many items and I am sure that it needs some editing.

Next Week in the Studio 

  • Regular Open Classes on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 6:00 to 10:00.
  • No Special Workshops this week as some students are on vacation.
  • No Party Van Workshops this week either.
  • kitesSoaring Kite WS will be the following week on Sunday (7/22), Monday (7/23), Wednesday (7/25), and Friday (7/27). Please let me know if you are doing the workshop so that I have enough bisque and enough technique packets printed. You may still come to class and work on something else while others are doing the workshop.
  • REMINDER: Christmas in July 20% off discount on your tree or Santa. Must be ordered and paid for during July to get the discount.

Updated Carousel Ornaments

We just got in molds for eight of the Alberta Carousel Ornaments. I added these to the Carousel Ornament page and updated the rest of the items. Please check it out. Go to Carousels on the menu bar and scroll down to Ornaments. Note that carousels have their own catalog and are not included under the catalog tab.

The Alberta ornaments are small and do not require a pole. Just hang by ribbon or ornament hook from the loop at the top. There is a carousel stand to display them. We have the canopy top for it and have ordered the pedestal mold. There are also three more animal molds (six animals) that we plan to order to complete the set.

Essentials Class

Essentials I & II taught by
Duncan Ambassador Dru Woodward
on July 7, 2018


There were nine new students working on their certification plus Carol updating hers. Carol & Jim have been certified Duncan Teachers since 1974.


We did seven projects and learned how to use the various Duncan underglazes: Concepts, French Dimensions, Cover Coat, and EZ-Stroke.


We were working ALL DAY from 9:00 in the morning to 10:00 at night. And there’s glazing to do when we get back home.

  • There were blueberry, chocolate chip, and banana nut muffins plus coffee and tea available upon arrival.
  • We enjoyed a pot luck lunch with Jen providing sloppy Joes. Yum! Lots of good food. We set up in the dining room like we do for family dinners.
  • Jim & Jeremy were our caterers for a delicious turkey dinner later in the day. Jim cooked and Jeremy set the table.
  • Everyone agrees to do the same for our next training, Essentials III & IV in August. There was a special request for Jim to make his wonderful ham dinner!

Fun workshop

Waiting for all to arrive to do today’s F U N workshop, a Sand-Painting technique on the medium piggy bank.

There are a few more Santas of a more contemporary style included on the sale page posted previously. We have recently added an African American Santa with either a boy or a girl on his lap. You will find them under Santa Stuff (see Santa Stuff). That page also includes mugs, boots, and other Santa-related items.
