Occassionally I will make something for a specific purpose in the house, such as this gravy boat.
On our last trip to New Zealand (Christmas 2010), I had fun looking around the craft shops in Taupo and picked up a few more ideas to use which resulted in the following pieces of work.
|Crazy Daisy (1) Ceramic and wire (~70cm)|
|Butterfly plaque (~28cm)|
|Crazy Daisy (2) Ceramic, wire and bead (~70cm)|
I often collect pebbles when beach combing and have masses of them scattered around the house and garden. Last summer I looked for pebbles which were the right shape to paint as ladybirds ready to put on my stall at the Thrive Open Day in September 2011; they proved to be very popular and not just with the children!
