Rollin’ in the grass…..

Just as a watched pot never boils, neither does a hot kiln cool down.  I have removed hot items from my kiln over the years toooooo mannnny times!  My fingers have lived to tell the tale, LOL.  So, now that it is not a rush to get orders out of the kiln, I let it cool completely.  A luxury I enjoy.

The grassy bits for my garden mosaic bench are finally cut out and ready to paint.

greenwaregrassTo my way of thinkin’ (and of course that is all that matters, he he he) grass is so many different shades of green.  In light of my thinkin’, I painted the grassy bits with 2 shades of green.

Who knows if it will finally form the complete picture I was working towards.  I still can’t wait……………. 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!
