Countdown Continues

This week in the studio we added designer bling, acrylic paints, metallics, and jewels to glass and plastic ornaments. There are still a few available if you want to stop by this week. Perhaps we will make some with snowmen in January and hearts in February. Who says ornaments are only for Christmas?

Footprint Plates

Baby plates are unique gifts with footprint or handprint pictures. We did a Facebook Live class on these with a PowerPoint presentation showing lots of ideas. Here are a couple students made. First plate was made this year. Other one was based on the FB picture shown here — we did Killian’s footprints.

Hmmm. We can do more plates like this for other themes and other holidays. In fact, MVCT plans to have kids do fish handprint pictures at the Midwest Ceramic Show in April. We did Daddy’s Grilling Plate for Father’s Day.

Christmas Vacation

We will be closed from Christmas Day to Sunday, January 10, 2021. We are having an MVCT meeting that Sunday and all are welcome to come do the Duncan U project with Larry Knight. It is a cake plate with pedestal but we decided to do it on a regular plate since that one is discontinued.

Here is a Christmas scene plate that I painted this year.
