I’ve been busy this week making ready for the Holiday Bazaar I’m taking part on this weekend. In addition to vacation prints and ceramics I made a number of ornaments to promote as effectively. I made ceramic state ornaments (just like these) at my native clay studio along with the hand painted baubles beneath.
I spied these shapely bisque ceramic ornaments on-line and couldn’t wait to get inventive with them. I painted a dozen summary and botanical motif ornaments with them to promote on the market this weekend. Here’s a glimpse of some I’ve accomplished to this point.
