Labor of Love

Looking at The Beads of Clay Flickr Group, it seems to have been a week of cracking open kilns and seeing the results of our labors. Our first picture Comes from Erin of Every Heart Crafts. I love those Owls!!! See more at her Blog http://www.everyheartcrafts.blogspot.com/
Next Claire Prenton Ceramics added this photo of her latest porcelain creations. You can see more pictures and find a link to her website from her Flickr page here- http://www.flickr.com/photos/claire_prenton/

I fired up the kiln this week too! I am getting ready to send my work to the Bead and Button Show with Joan Miller and keeping my etsy shop stocked with fresh goodies. Here's a link to my etsy shop www.artisanclay.etsy.com

And finishing up our week is this great collection from Lisa Peters. Lisa is getting ready to head out to the Bead and Button Show in Milwaukee early next month. It's coming up really soon and I know Lisa will have a great selection of beautiful work! You can drool over her Flickr page while you wait! http://www.flickr.com/photos/lisapetersart/
I hope I leave you tempted by all these goodies or inspired to get in the studio!
