Pottery Time: Paint Brush Holder
Thought it was time to start sharing some pottery creations again. This is one I created a little while ago, but I finally gave it to a friend for her birthday (along with new brushes, paint, a stretched canvas and palette.) I also made one for myself, but I need to take a picture of it. I am thinking of suggesting to my daughter that she make one of these for herself and her after school Art Club teacher (yes, we are working on Christmas presents already - pottery takes time!)
To make this, I did it by hand building the clay in to a triangle shape then cutting out the curved area and molding them with my hands to make them smooth. I then carved in leaves and hand painted glaze over the entire piece in blue and each individual leaf.
