Curiouser and Curiouser…..

The bridal shower preparations are firmly underway.  We have our theme and have been working on all the wonky wonderful serving dishes from Wonderland.  Thank goodness we have 2 more months, yikes where has the time gone!  I am trying to not be literal with my decorations, but the theme will be strong non the less.

Above is the starting point for my dish.  I have finished the bottom half of the piece and it’s in the kiln to fire.

I know you can see the direction I am taking, yes?  The kiln has cooled, my favorite part is opening up and seeing the surprises that await you.

The little vase is now fused in firing to the plate.  The top plate is glazed and ready for firing, I can’t wait to see if it all comes together.  Either way the process is way too entertaining…. 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!
