Giveaway! – ¡Un sorteo!

Since the beginning of the school year, I have been playing with one of the art teachers at school. The last time that I had used the pottery wheel was when I was twelve years old, and it has been fun to rediscover it.

Desde el principio del año escolar he estado jugando con una de los profesores de arte en su taller en la escuela. No había usado la rueda para hacer cerámica en treinta años. Ha sido divertido re-descubrir el arte de hacerlo.

My pottery turned out better than I had expected. I guess it was better than Douglas expected as well, because when I brought it home he exclaimed, “That’s like stuff you would see in a store!” I am not an expert, but the bowls are well shaped.

Mis recipientes salieron mejor de que esperaba. Parece que Douglas no esperaba mucho de mi arte tampoco porque se sorprendió mucho cuando los llevé a casa. Me dijo que se parecen a los que se compran en las tiendas. La verdad es que no soy experta, pero los tazones son bien formados.

What I am not yet able to do is to replicate a style of bowl. Each one comes out as an original. It would be great to have a set, but what I have is more like similar collections of colors.

Lo que no puedo hacer todavía es replicar una forma. Me gustaría tener un juego de boles, pero cada uno de los míos es un original. Tengo unas colecciones de colores similares.

The pottery has been fun to make, but I am not sure where to put it all. I was pondering that, when I had an idea. Why not give it away? However, I only want to give my pieces to people that want them. I am not going to foist them on anyone!

Me ha gustado el acto de hacer la cerámica, pero no sé dónde guardarlos. Estaba pensando en eso cuando se me ocurrió una solución. ¿Por qué no regalarlos? Era una idea fantástica, pero lo único importante era regalarlos a quien le gustarían. No quiero que la gente se sienta obligada.

I am a teacher, traveler, artist, writer, homemaker and a whole lot more. In January 2009, I bought the Cape of Dreams. It was the second house that I had ever owned, but it was the first that I bought by myself. I now live in the house with my husband Douglas, our dog Kahlua, and Crème de Menthe, the cat. Because, what life is complete without a little Kahlua and Cream? I love arts and crafts of all kinds, and I refinish furniture as well. We are slowly redoing our entire house.

      Send me an email with your address and let me know which of the two you prefer. I definitely think that #5 would match better with the colors in your house.

    They are all lovely. The variation in colors, the “drips”, the pretty shapes. Just wanted to compliment your pieces.

  7. Alison says:

    OMG I love my bowl SO MUCH!!! It was waiting for me when I got home today – I love it so much more than even the picture, and the picture of it was awesome. Thank you SO SO SO MUCH!!!

    Jessica, I am so impressed! I saw your lovely bowl over on Jo’s blog so came over to check out the others. I don’t need a bowl, too much pottery as it is, but oh my, the glaze inside #6 is lovely. You surely have a knack for this craft.
