A Birthday Surprise, Cute pottery figures, Daphne the Dragon, Glazing Pottery, Simon the Snail, Sydney the Smiling Snail, Terrific Trio
Today, I finally got to collect my fired pottery!! A couple of weeks ago our lovely daughter organised a little surprise morning out for my **th Birthday! As it turned out, she had booked us a couple of seats in a pottery painting studio, not something I would have ever guessed!
On arrival at the Pottery, the lovely owner, Carol, asked us to select, from a huge assortment of pottery figures, something we would like to glaze. Whilst I picked three little ones, as we had about 2/3 hours in the studio, my daughter picked a stack of four turtles, very cute, but, a mammoth ask to glaze in that time, especially as it required three very good coats over the entire piece! We picked our glaze colours grabbed some brushes and set too! Sadly, lovely daughter didn’t finish her turtle stack…which means we will get to go again next time she is visiting…YAY 😉 However, as you will have seen, I did manage to finish all three, I’ve been so excited over the past few weeks wondering how they would turn out after they were fired?? I can definitely say, I’m thrilled to bits with the results 😀
