Cartoon Re-Update

When I added the new samples to the Cartoon Corner page yesterday, I discovered that the pictures were outdated and descriptions were missing. So today I spent several hours redoing the page with all new pictures and descriptions. Check it out Cartoon Corner.

Leisuramics 8011 Teddi Barra of Country Bear Jubilee

Oh yes, I also painted Teddi Barra this morning and added her to the collection. She is the singer in the Country Bear Jamboree. We have four characters — still have to paint Big Al!

Soaring Kites WS

REMINDER: Soaring Kites WS this week. We have this serving plate (or trivet) and also some “framed” serving plates the same size.
REMEMBER: This is not about the product you make, but about learning several new techniques that you can use on other pieces.
REGISTER: Sunday afternoon plus Monday, Wednesday, and Friday evenings during regular Open Class.. If this doesn’t work for you let me know. We can always do an afternoon session or even next Sunday.Kite Plate WS 6-22 23 25 POSTER

Another new Catalog Page

See the source imageCovered Up

This page has containers, boxes, jar lid covers and other things with lids. Casseroles, canisters, jugs, and covered beer steins are on other pages. (74 items)

Again I ask for your help with proofreading. Many of our boxes have not yet been poured but we are working on it.

Check it out here: Covered Up

They make great gifts and you can
always tuck a little something inside.

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.
