I am loving these mugs!
They are so happy and make me laugh! Now all I need to add is all the color to the pattern and they should be perfectly “Mary”!
Last week at pottery I threw these mugs on the pottery wheel with no problem after being away from pottery for three months. It felt great!
This week, in the classroom, I added the handles, eyes and mouths. That in itself took me three hours, so I took them home to carve the decorations and tomorrow I will paint all the details. These are supposed to resemble the sugar skulls from the Day of the Dead celebration in Mexico.
The only risk I run now, is driving them back to the pottery studio in one piece. They are extremely fragile before firing…wish me luck!
I also added a few more finishing touches to my giant painting. The eyelets and shoelaces to the sneakers as well as a second layer of feathers to the feather duster. NOW IT’S FINISHED OFFICIALLY!
I have a fever, aches, pains and a runny nose care of my kiddos. I’m off to have a cup of soup and slip into bed.
