The birthday party event the day before is over. The birthday itself is over. And, as happens every year, the day after my birthday is flag day. So that got me to thinking about what kinds of flags we have in ceramics. Ceramics are not very flexible but we still have items that represent things that are soft and flexible.
The flag items will be found in the album God Bless America. We are having a Celebrate America weeklong event at the end of the month to make things for the Fourth of July. Scroll down to see an earlier post about that. These items are all shown in that post also. We do have a flag for you if you choose to make Aunt Betsy. The last set of items make pins or magnets.
We also have a U.S. Historic Flag plate and a Fife and Drum plate. The first can be painted in underglazes and used with food. The second is decorative and can be painted in either underglazes or acrylic stains. Although not a flag, the last item here is actually a nine-inch diameter ashtray that reminds me of the Presidential Seal. All three of these molds were brought back from Weaver last month and are new additions to our collection.
