I have been attending a homeschool group ceramics class and making some pieces of artwork. Today I got back my first piece of work a 'Fairy Door'. I will share my other projects at a later date once I have received them as they take time drying and going in the special kiln.
The first week we used clay to design the door. Then after it had dried the next week we painted the door. Then it had to go back in the oven again and wait for another week. The photo below shows me designing the door with clay.

It is so different how the finished glazed item turns out from when it is finished painting. I have really enjoyed doing this class.
