These are so professional BD *applauds* Well done. My favourite is the Mockingbird.

Just gorgeous. The cat on the ornament looks so lifelike.

I really like the Sunflower in that dark frame and the Butterfly trivet.

I half expected that butterfly to flutter! And the sunflower looks three-dimensional, it's absolutely delightful. The fur on those cats and the feathers of the mockingbird is incredibly lifelike too. You are good!

Thanks Frank, Toni and Droopy! I really miss teaching ceramics. It's pretty much a dying art and studios are few and far between these days.

I would love to find a pottery store around here. There used to be a couple not too far away and I spent a lot of money on the bisqueware, paints and firings. I had a couple of pieces ready for final firing and found the last shop had closed down when I took it to them.

That wasn't by chance Eggsactly Ceramics in Farmers Branch was it?? I worked and taught classes there from 2002 - 2004 when they closed up.

Probably not. The ones I went to here closed back in the late 80's/early 90's.
One on Old Denton Rd in Farmers Branch and one in downtown Carrollton.

I never knew about Eggsactly or I would have been there a few times.

Well you certainly haven't lost any of your talent!! I think your work is incredibly beautiful and would certainly buy them if they were for sale. My daughter took a look at them when she visited today and her comment ws simply "WOW" and I agree with her 100%.

Whew, gorgeous! Kitty is my favorite, too. We just lost our local ceramic shop a few years ago, they couldn't keep it going. Your pieces might inspire a resurgence.
