Pottery Time: Toothpick Holder


I made this pottery toothpick holder for my husband for his birthday. I like to make some gifts and sometimes struggle with stuff for guys, but this one was a no-brainer. My husband loves his toothpicks after a meal and since he is often eating lunch at his desk, I thought he could use a toothpick holder. I didn't want just a cup-like one, I wanted something a little more artistic and so I came up with this design.

I made it my slab rolling clay and hand building. After I slab rolled out my clay I cut out a circle of clay and began to form it together with having the center being pressed in and together and having the sides be raised (can't have the toothpicks falling out!). I thought it turned out pretty nice and was a good idea for a guys gift for birthday, Father's Day or Christmas.

That's a great idea! I've been looking for Father's Day gifts - I didn't think of trying to make something!
