Just a few pictures at the second open house, September 14, 2019. I was having so much fun I didn't take more pictures!
Our second open house had a door prize of a large pottery leaf made by Marcia. Ardel was so happy
her name was pulled as the winner!
The watercolor class held by Annika Farmer was so much fun! The ladies created a watercolor piece using a lovely floral arrangement as their inspiration. Three of the ladies had never touched watercolors before! Look at the beautiful pieces they produced......
Enjoy these pictures from around the Craft Cottage; workshops and classes, and pictures of the art produced by Ricardo, Annika, Marcia, and Dori.
A picture of some of the pottery by Marcia and a vase by Dori. The beautiful vase has been sold. The large yarn bowl was a commisioned piece and is sold. Feel free to contact us if you would like similar custom made for you!
Our first open house we had a surprise door prize of a giclee print of one of Ricardo's pieces, called Regatta. It was to the delight of Angela that her name was pulled as the winner!
Above are finished trinket boxes that are used as examples of the boxes we are making in the workshop. They are about 3" in diameter and 2" tall.
Pottery Leaves workshop set up and ready to go! It was so much fun! Made leaves in time for fall!
Below are some pictures at the cottage. All the paintings are by Ricardo Gomez, some shown are originals and some are giclee prints. Any of the paintings you love of Ricardo's can be purchased in a giclee print, which is a print on canvas that looks like an original. Be sure to check his web site: www.ArtofRicardo.com
The current workshop is to make a trinket box! We have made our boxes, and they are out of the kiln as bisque. We have glazed them and they will be added here as soon as they are out of the kiln as a finished piece. Check back next week!
Here are some of the leaves made in the workshop!
Upcoming FUN! Make a unique birdhouse in April! This little charmer is easy to make and all materials will be furnished, along with something to drink and some munchies. Check the calendar for the day in April and other info.
Birds of a feather may flock together, but a bird with this home will never roam! This project will incorporate a different type of grouting. It is a hands-on class that provides a basic understanding and the skills for creating beautiful outdoor mosaics. This mosaic birdhouse project is approx. 6” - 7”. There will be no glass cutting in this class, as we’ll be using rocks, marbles, and even pinecones! No art or mosaic experience is required!
