The thaw is over, however. Yesterday we had snow all day and today everything is gorgeous, draped in a layer of white. The cold has returned with a vengeance. Frankly, I'm enjoying my wee self this year.
We are lucky enough to have a warm home in which to take refuge from the cold. Over the weekend, the amaryllis that our friend gave us as a holiday gift bloomed. A strong dose of colour in this minimalist time of year.
And I thought I would use this as an excuse to share some pictures of some ceramic work that I have been making at our Monday class at Greenwich House Pottery. The class also is just lovely - it is three homeschooling families, parents and children, working on various projects with a really amazing teacher named Stacy. This fall, I tried working with porcelain, which lives up to its reputation as being somewhat like working with cream cheese. But, is it beautiful or what?
This was my attempt at making a plate without a form. I have to admit, I like the objects that look a little off-kilter best, which is probably a good thing since my control over the cream cheese isn't always what it might be.
Can you see the crochet influence?
