Pansies on Parade…..

Pansies, pansies, pansies.  I was trying to use the “Think System”, I figured if it worked for the Music Man it might work for me too.  The clay representations have been cut out, cleaned, and fired.

pansiespaintedOkay, I told you daisies were an easy flower for me to duplicate on clay.  Pansies on the other hand had me worried.  All I was hoping for was that my attempt at pansies would be recognizable as pansies! LOL.  I opened up the kiln and yeah I could see pansies.  Well, I could see the red pansies………….


I think I will get some yellow and purple pansies painted also to add to the floral garden.  Next up is the Iris, one of my favorite flowers.  Cross your fingers, if you thought the pansy wasn’t a big enough challenge, boy oh boy the iris surely is.  See you soon, 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 was limiting, so Colleen got her started with Wordpress. Hope you enjoy her Adventures with Creativity!
