For The Birds

In my last entry, I posted a photo of this wreath prior to kiln firing. Here it is fully glazed and ready to hang! I made several of these wreath pieces with different themes, but I like the birds so much. There is something magical about taking a piece from the initial idea, then to dimensionality, and lastly making it come to life with colors. I love the process. Sculpting these pieces is fun too and takes me away from surface painting and keeps my hands in clay. Sweet.

Good Thursday evening to you Sharon.

That is such a pretty piece - you are very creative! Birds just make a home welcome with their chirping joy, so this would always be a reminder of that!

Just came by to say hello, to thank you for visiting my blog - and to wish you GOOD LUCK on the 4300 dollar gift card giveaway:)
