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.

The color on those luminaries is gorgeous!  I suppose they aren't meant to be Christmas-y, but the designs and the way the light shines through takes my mind there.  (Although the fact that I'm listening to Christmas music while working on holiday ATCs might have something to do with it too...)

Hard to pick a favorite project, though.  That antelope ornament is pretty spiffy, too (and looks great on the blue).

    How pretty! I love the luminaries, like your mom did.

    But the tree mugs and the deer mug are probably my favourites!
    Which doesn't mean that your other potteries are not that good!  Wink

    Great work! Thanks for sharing with us!  Smiley

    I was going to say the luminaries are my favourite - but then I saw the tree mugs.  I think I love the tree mugs the most - but love the luminaries and how the lights shine.  Love the lidded jar too - it makes me think of a butter bell.  I also love the snowflake ornaments too - great job on everything!
