Another ceramics lamp finished. This is a flushmount for one of our bedrooms that I am currently making over. Follow along in stories for that. Swipe left to see how we put the lamp together. #keramik #ceramics #ceramiclamp #modernceramics #claylove #ahomefordesign
I made this lamp for my craft room out of cardstock cut with my @officialcricut and many, many parts from @grandbrasslampparts . Swipe left to see it lit! If my 2020 were Chinese, it would be the year of the lamp! Many more to come.
A big item checked off the list before Christmas: dining area in the family room is ready for guests! Next year a one wall kitchen will go along the back wall on the left and new flooring. I am in the middle of ordering door samples right now. Follow stories for real time reno of our home.
If you are following our bathroom remodel saga on stories, you will nod knowingly as to why the advent calendar is 5 days late. But here it is! The envelopes are coin envelopes and I put chokolate coins inside. Everything is from Amazon.com but the coins. They are from Trader Joe's #adventcalendar2019 #christmasdecor
I made this set of nesting bowls for my cousin and her brand new husband as our wedding gift on Saturday. It took a little over a month to make, most of that time being dedicated to drying and getting kiln fired. I made a crepe flower and fern card for the gift wrap to coordinate with the wedding theme. Swipe left to see. The bowls came out of the kiln on Monday as we were leaving on Wednesday, so no sweat (!) We transported the bowls very gingerly in a carry-on suitcase filled with bubble wrap for the plane ride to Denmark and I am happy to report that not only did the bowls make it there just fine, they both said 'YES' @filde1 #wheelthrownceramics #handmade #green #imadethis
On Saturday, my cousin got married. I designed a dress to wear. The dress ended up wearing me, so I split it up and wore the skirt with a pared down cream top. For brunch the next day, I wore the top I made with black pants. I also added a picture of the whole dress together. Swipe left to see. The fabric I bought in Denmark in August. #imadethis #handsewn #designbyme #handmadeclothing
This fall I have been inspired by golden tones of green and cream, such as this wreath which I made today. #diyhomedecor #diyfallcrafts #fallwreath

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
