Our works of art!

As you all know I went to a pottery painting place on my Birthday, we all decorated various pieces of pottery and had a great deal of fun doing so. We had to leave the pieces at the studio as they needed to be fired and glazed so I was really excited to pick them up.

Here is Aidans little handprint masterpiece, he loved dabbling the paint and squishing it round with his fingers.

This mug was decorated by Chris but I should point out he was severely hampered by Aidan. He did the bulk of the childcare and left us to enjoy our painting. I think I will take him back there one day when we are on holiday and Aidan is at Nursery so he can paint something properly. That said I love this as its really bright and I love Aidans "free painting" all over it too!

And here is my Teacup and Saucer. I am really happy with the way it has come out, nice and bright like I wanted it too.

I wish I had taken a photo of my Mums plate, that she painted a picture of our Westie onto, and also my Cousins mug which was decorated with lady birds and a garden theme. Both were wonderful. I really recommend you going to a pottery painting studio, it was very therapeutic and you had no choice but to concentrate on your piece and your piece alone. I would love to go one day, just me on my own, to relax.

They may not be technically great but I love our unique pieces of work :-)

  1. It is a great idea and if I went I'd take Mr Sft and his dad who are both really arty and my SIL who is an artist (though she paints mainly nudes, so maybe not) :)

    Love all of them, esp Aidan's little hand print.

    Is that cake I see on yours?
