Edited to add: Thank you for all of the lovely comments - I really appreciate it. This is such a great community
I attended my first pottery class a few weeks ago.
It was to make a head planter.
I have a Frida Kahlo pot in my succulent garden, that I love. I wanted a version for my rose garden.
I’m still not sure what I’m going to plant in her yet.
I tried to add texture to the body by pressing a doily into the clay. When I was shaping the bottom of the planter, it lost some of these finer details.
I tried to layer black and blue through the hair, unfortunately I put the black on first and the blue was an after thought. So the blue didn’t show through.
You can tell I’m serious when the glasses come on.
This is incredible! I love that you made Frida. Shes so iconic. Love the 3-D flowers. I hope you do more of this because it looks like your a natural!
Oh, I just love this! Well done. It will look fantastic with plants popping up all around it.
Amazing, especially for a first project! So many wonderful flowers! Would be fun to see what it looks like with (a) plant(s) inside; hope you post a picture. How long was the actual workshop? It looks like you got a lot done there.
So much awesome detail!!! Love the flowers especially and the pics of you in progress!
The workshop was across two Saturdays.
The first one was five hours and the glazing workshop was approximately three hours.
It was definitely a lot of fun. I’m trying to get my sister to do the next one with me.
Congrats! Your project is one of our features this week!
Wow! This is absolutely the coolest. Your composition with the flowers takes it from great to amazing. What a fun project and great result.
This is so cool! I can imagine some vine type plants creeping around the form looking really neat.
Ohh, I love this idea.
I might need to find a small native vine to pop in there.
Oh wow, thank you so much!
She’s gorgeous! You did a wonderful job and I love seeing her in the garden. Thank you for sharing.
This is really wonderful. I love a planter with personality and this one’s a winner!
