As I peruse the bountiful items on Etsy, Artfire & Icraft  I am always shocked and impressed with what I see. Many of you have such creative minds, and maybe sometimes I don’t understand the work, but I can always appreciate the work and imagination that goes on behind it. I love sewing, it is more technical – I get to be more creative with fabrics, threads, combinations of colors & accessories. I have never been able to draw very much outside of stick men & cutesy doodle flowers, nor have I been able to work with clay or pottery (successfully).

I once to a pottery class in college. I had so much fun spinning on the wheel trying to make a set of 12 identical mugs.. I took many, many tries and they looked similar, but not like a unified set. I can appreciate the work that goes into pottery & clay models. It takes very skilled hands to perfect these arts – the details that goes into them is just unbelievable. While I wish I could go back and try it again, feel the clay rippling under my hands, I know this was not my calling.

Here are a few clay inspired items to start off your day:
