On March 9th, I showed an African Violet pot that I was making in my ceramics class. In the photo above you can see the finished project sporting my newest African Violet. Below is a photo of the same African Violet in its original green plastic pot. It’s the standard pot that most African Violets are sold in.
This is an African Violet pot that I made last year. I painted it to look like a strawberry. I’ve started working on a third pot, in class and I’ll paint it next week, once I’ve decided on the colors. My goal is to have a brightly colored pot for each one of my African Violets. It will keep me busy for quite awhile, but I love the look of the colorful flowers and cheery pots sitting on my kitchen windowsill.
Here is the ceramic gravy boat I made for the Red Project in my slip casting class.
I took this photo of the gravy boat in its green ware state, before the first firing. Below you see the process of painting the bisqued piece after the first firing.
