41  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Christmas Pottery on: November 28, 2013 10:36:52 AM
Here are my latest creations. I'd love to know what you think. Constructive criticism is always welcome!

I'm really excited about the little creamer. I love the blue and white with the flowers and stripes!



I really should have stenciled these chevron ornaments, but I carved them out by hand instead. Took way longer than it needed to.



My sister made the paper snowflakes that I used for the stencils on these. She based them on letters from the Hebrew alphabet. How cool is that?!



And some more ornaments! I've made so many flipping ornaments this year! I'm planning to give them out to friends and family.

The little chickadee was especially fun to make.

Those look and sound fantastic! I'm getting ready to make my first batch and I'm so excited!!
43  COOKING / Dessert / Easy Dark Chocolate Pudding From Scratch on: November 07, 2013 03:34:54 PM
This is my favorite pudding to make. It's very rich and almost mousse like in texture. Plus it's fairly quick and easy, so it makes a great dessert when you have unexpected guests.



Easy Dark Chocolate Pudding
original recipe at Epicurious
Serves 4

- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 4 ounces fine-quality bittersweet chocolate (I like 70%. Use the good stuff and thank me later!)
- 1 1/3 cups whole milk
- 1 large egg yolk
- vanilla extract (Trader Joes sells bourbon vanilla extract. It's awesome and also not super expensive.)

Combine the sugar, cornstarch, and a pinch salt, in a medium saucepan. Chop the chocolate (it's super easy to do in a food processor) and add to sugar mixture. Whisk together the milk and egg yolk (make sure not to add the icky, rubbery white thing that likes to stick to the yolk) and gradually stir it into chocolate mixture. Bring mixture just to a boil over moderate heat, stirring constantly with a silicone spatula, and bring it to a boil. Continue mixing for 1 minute. Remove the pan from heat and whisk in a small splash of vanilla (1/4-1/2 teaspoon).

Spoon the pudding into small ramekins (teacups also work, in a pinch). Eat it warm or chill it in the refrigerator. In a pinch, you can pop them in the freezer for about 30 minutes.

For a yummy variation, add a pinch of cinnamon to the dry ingredients!

Very nice! I love seeing other ceramic artists on craftster! Your tile is wonderful! I think it would look fantastic hanging on the wall.

Here's my latest stuff. I'd love to know what you think and which is your favorite! Smiley

I made this pair of luminaries for my Mom's birthday. She was so excited to get them! Made me super happy. Smiley



A couple different Christmas ornaments. The antelope was drawn by hand and the snowflake was made using some paper snowflakes as a stencils. I can't take credit for the snowflakes. My sister made them. She's a million times better at origami and paper snowflakes than I am!





Some little dishes for mise en place or dipping sauces or to hold earrings in the bathroom. Ya know. Just whatever.





Some mugs.





And a vase and a lidded jar.



50  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Punkins! on: October 31, 2013 04:40:31 PM
Here are our pumpkins for the year! I made the tree, the face and the dog foot print. Hubster made the dogfish head shark and Navi (the fairy from Zelda).
