Plane Beginnings – Part 1

Plane Beginnings –  from 3-19-13

A new challenge has been offered to me and I couldn’t resist!  Colleen has asked me to make a plane themed divided box for a baby shower gift.  It was an intriguing theme, one I have not attempted before so, of course I am thrilled for the job.  Steven and I talked about it, not wanting to make it to heavy or cumbersome.  We think it would be fun to have the plane go through the box, I don’t think there will be wings due to the cumbersome problem.  So I have gathered the research I did and grabbed some ceramic pieces, a oatmeal lid, and drew out the piece I need to cut from clay.

The tail end Steven is going to tackle, he had some ideas that would balance the two ends of the box.  Not sure if we will put a handle on this one, still deciding.  The major obsticle has been cleared, getting the direction we want to go under way.  Now off to cut out the clay……… Cyn

About designbycyn

Sonoma County, California ceramic enthusiasts Cyn and Steven Gradek have worked in the clay medium since 1996. They had a retail store where they held classes and provided the essentials for fellow ceramic enthusiasts. The business evolved into producing for other retail outlets and artist. Which quickly grew and they closed the retail storefront and concentrated on the wholesale business. With their 3 children raised and on their own, they had time to pursue their own creativity. Cyn learned how to embroider from her Grandma Cirner at a young age. After that she found sewing, cross stitching, crocheting, well you get the jist, LOL. She hasn't met a craft that she hasn't liked. Blogging was suggested by her youngest daughter, Colleen. At first it was a battle to get her to try it, but eventually Cyn started to enjoy the exercise. The blog on Cyn's website designbycyn.com was limiting, so Colleen got her started with Wordpress. Hope you enjoy her Adventures with Creativity!
