I am quite happy about bowl : )  and am not so happy about the mug. but it is ceramics, and what I already understood – it is very important to experiment and learn by experimenting.  I like that part – learning by experimenting 🙂

Wool yarn

Yay!  I just have filled my Etsy shop https://www.etsy.com/shop/CozyCappuccino?ref=search_shop_redirect with lovely wool yarn. The colours are pleasant and natural. Yarn -pure wool, wonderfull for all projects – for clothes, accessories or for home accessories. I have tested it and work with this yarn myself  – it is pleasant to crochet or knit.

My last finished project – large wool blanket, which will be for sale soon on my Etsy store, also  the tutorial for making this blanket:

Ceramics workshop- part I

Yesterday I have my dream come true – we went to the ceramics (real ceramics!) workshop to lovely Vilija and Osvaldas (https://www.facebook.com/VilijaOsvaldasCeramics?fref=ts). They live near Panevezys in beautiful and quiet place, surrounded by meadows and forests. You can see the artists live there:

We went  together with my mom to the workshop – it was my birthday present for her. She was soo hapy and exited!

Soo… we had to start working. The begining was very timid – we look how our teacher Vilija manipulate with clay. By the way  – the clay was special – with the small grains, whichs dries fast and has very nice texture. It was very timid to touch the clay and start shaping it, but after 10 minutes we forgot we do not know how to do it – everybody was very involved and very busy – real artists!

So now our creatures have to dry for about one week. Then will come glazing and encausting. Can’t wait to see the final result !  But ceramics learns to important things – the process is important, you need patience and can not be in hurry. Yes, learning enjoy the process !
