So...after making plates...I started to make some bowls. I really like these cute Ruffle Rim Bowls!
I think they'll look really cute in pretty Spring colors...like pink, yellow, baby blue, mint, and peach!
Everything was going well...until...my thumb nail put a huge crater in the side of my bowl! Well...maybe it wasn't a crater, it looked more like a mini Grand Canyon really! It was about 2 inches long, and really deep! So after staring at it, and thinking..."I can't believe I did it again," I walked over to my bag of clay...grabbed a piece and rolled it out. This time...I didn't have to think about how to fix it. I just made a leaf.
And here it is!
And now I have a matching set!
This was my other problem! I made this really cute Flower Bowl...and when it started to dry...it started to crack, and it wasn't just one crack...it was four! So...being the stubborn person that I am...I decided to fix it!
After fixing it once...it cracked again, and again, and again! See...I told you I was stubborn!
So...after fixing it four times...I think I did it! These are the tools I used to fix it! A handy little (very sharp) kitchen knife, an old cleaning tool from when I was 15...can you believe I still have that thing? My favorite wooden tool that's almost 21 years old, a plastic knitting needle (my secret weapon), from my knitting days, and a makeup sponge...which is very handy for small spaces! So far, so good...I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hoping that it makes it through the firing!
