One of my recent clay projects is a toadhouse.  I'm posting it even tho I didn't quite finish it---I intended to enhance the colors on the bottom with a dark stain.  I was unable to complete it because the glaze didn't stick to the piece.  The studio I go to used a new batch of clay & none of the items made with it were any good.  Just touching them caused tiny shards to flake off of the surface. 

I put it outside under the magnolia tree to see how long it will last so I guess I'm going to have to be satisfied with photos.    Fortunately, I can handle that.  I usually take photos of everything I create & then sell or give most of them away.

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

The toad house looks perfect in your garden.
I hope your toads are less un-cute than the cane toad. I am not ready to make them a house, even if they eat cockroaches!
