From the kiln this week. This was my first reduction firing. I usually fire in oxidation. This clay turns yellow in oxidation (electric kiln) but red in reduction (gas kiln) but even more fun, the matte white glaze gets little speckles from the clay body during firing. For comparison I stuck a picture of a bowl with the same glaze but on a white clay body and fired in oxidation for comparison - swipe left twice to see that. #adventuresinchemistry
Almost all the bathroom planning is coming to an end, so while we wait for everything to get going, we tackled a quick surprise bedroom make-over for our son including building him a new closet organizer using our local @sawbox_llc diy cabinet service. Full story and more pictures via link in profile or go to https://ahomefordesign.com. This make-over definitely sparked joy! #ahomefordesign
I started taking a ceramics class i September and I am just loving it. Here are some things that came out of the kiln this week and recently. The white serving bowl is about 3 lbs clay, the vases are 2 - 2.5 lbs. The ring dish is slab rolled and I hand drew the leaf shape and cut it out of a transparency.
Obligatory Insta snow picture. We got several inches which is rare in Seattle. Love our little #midmod house in the forest 😍
We built this sweet little table in an efford to become better at woodworking as we want to tackle bigger builds in the future. We tried a #bentwood technique. See a step by step on ahomefordesign.com link in profile. #Imadethis #handmade
My Cranberry root muffin recipe is now available on ahomeforfood.com (link in profile). This is a great staple in my lunch repertoire. I have one of these with my green juice and some carrot sticks. Down 9 pounds since January 2nd 🌳#ahomeforfood #paleorecipes

Huge post on Ahomefordesign.com (link in profile) where I make a tally of all the big house item projects we finished in 2018. And what our goals are for 2019. 2019 is shaping up to be the year of the bathroom remodels, so if you want to jump in and follow along here is your chance to get caught up in our real life non-sponsored remodel of a 1953 #Midcentury marvel. I cover all the necessary things inside the walls that have to be done before we get to the pretty. Who is here for it?
While I am fairly certain most of you can figure out how to make a pinecone white, I still gave this post life. Why? Swipe left and see that glorious cone dripping in paint in the sunlight. A craft action shot if you will. This concludes my frantic post Christmas Christmas posting. 7 of 7. Thanks for riding along 😊. Peace!
