Special Wedding Favors

I've been making pottery for almost 21 years now...and I have to say...I've never even thought about making Wedding Favors! I can't take credit for the idea was my beautiful daughter Jayme's idea! She's getting married to a wonderful guy, and I'm soooo happy for them! Jayme wanted something different for her wedding...and she asked me if I could make something. This is what we came up with!

Tiny Leaf Tea Light Holders

This is how it all starts...with a 25 lb bag of clay!

I cut the clay with my wire tool...and roll out a slab with my North Star Slab Roller!

I cut out the leaves with my needle tool!

Then I shape them, and wait for them to dry...just long enough to hold their shape!

Then I use my favorite sponge, and make them pretty!

And Voila! This is what they look like when they come out of my kiln!

Now just 60 something more!
