This is where my little business has all started with this jug! How exciting!
A month or two ago I set up a studio at home so that I can now work from home while my girls are at school in the morning.
I have been Homeschooling my 2 teenage girls for 4 years ... but now my 13 year old is in Grade 8 at our local High School and my 16 year old has just finished her IGCSE's and is at a Cambridge College in our area busy with her AS and A levels.
Its so strange not to have them around in the morning but I am loving the time to create and work with my hands with clay!
This is the jug bisque fired and I worked with underglazes to paint the little birds. I decided I want to start with South African birds on my jugs and these are little Gorgeous Bushshrikes.
The clear glaze has brought out the bright colours of these birds which I really love! This is a 1 litre jug.
I now have many orders I am busy working on! Its so fantastic to be spending my time doing something I absolutely love! Such a blessing!
I have custom orders for not only South African birds. I am almost finished an Australian Kookaburra. It is a type of Kingfisher and is very beautiful.
I create my jugs using the coiling method of handbuilding. Although it takes a long time I love the look of it being handmade.
If anyone is interested in ordering my jugs you can email me - firstname.lastname@example.org
and I will send you all the details. I can ship locally and overseas.
Have a amazing Wednesday!
