ceramic head

Thirty year old ceramic head. Every year I plant this, and another one (hidden behind a hanging basket) with lobelia or other trailing plants. I was going to put in nasturtium seeds but forgot!

I’m pleased with how it’s lasted. When it was fired it had a crack in the back and over the last twenty five years its been out there I’ve expected the frost to break it but it survived. I made it at a pottery class in Newcastle-under-Lyme and was really pleased with the result.

Anyway I’m thinking of making some more if I can find a pottery class or group.x

Morning glory dies

The morning glory plants I nurtured in the summer have died back, their tendrils are collapsing. It took ages to get them to germinate, even in the heat of summer and I only saw one fully open flower. As the temperature cooled the flowers wilted, didn’t continue to grow. It was sad, but I think I will get some more seeds next year, possibly a different type, I would like to grow sky blue ones, not purple and pink which these were.

I jazzed up the photo in photodirector. Makes it more interesting.

Necklace

20191208_212251

This is one of the necklaces I sold recently. Unfortunately the catch is a bit difficult to open for the new owner. Its a ball chain and you have to turn the chain to 90° to the clasp and slip the chain out. After a discussion I’m going to try and get a longer chain for her with a different clasp to make things easier. I want people to be happy with what I’ve created.
