I decided to make a cute little bug out of clay and use high fire wire for its legs and fire it in my kiln. I absolutely love this cute little bug! I really need to make more of these. I added a little notch underneath the bug so that he can be attached to a bamboo kabob skewer and used as a decorative stake in a houseplant or the garden.

LOVE IT!

Everyone needs a cute little bug!!

Here are some clay shots of pottery “in the making” as Karen has been creating new pottery!  Sometimes the process behind the art is largely hidden, so she would like to share it with you for people to see and appreciate the process.  She will eventually post pottery-throwing videos as well.  For now, her trusty camera has taken some decent clay shots!  Enjoy!

This was a fun one!  It will be a cake plate with a rim similar to a shallow bowl, so it is a specialized cake plate (in the making)!
 
 

Here is the specialized cake plate, in raw clay form (greenware)

Karen and Nick, two potters in their Columbus, Ohio studio, are working on new pottery nearly each and every single day.  New pottery will be posted soon to the website www.craftybynaturestudio.com
 
It will also be posted, most likely, to etsy at www.craftybynaturestudio.etsy.com
 
Karen will also post some highlights here, on this blog, at www.craftybynaturestudio.wordpress.com
 
Cheers, good health, happiness, and yes pottery!
