So I tossed another bunch of clay bits into the fire pit. Here's the haul that came out...

Notice how every piece is fine and dandy except for the nice moon face at the bottom... the ONE piece I would have like to have survived. Such is life. *sigh*

I AM happy that those lovely bits at the top left came out unscathed because little hands made them! Here's a better look at what young visitors created when they popped by the studio the other week...

I love the work kids create. Perhaps because it's made with interest and excitement and not toward some unrealistic end. Kids, generally, get true joy from the process of making.

Finally, all those little squares on the bottom left corner are this little city of houses. They are currently standing at attention on my kitchen table waiting for some arty affection. I think they are rather nice lined up in neat little rows. Perhaps they need a town to call their own.

Oh! One last little note. There are three new large mandrakes available in the etsy shop...

 ... and a handful of brand new mini mandrakes too!


  1. Love them, I want to come play.

  2. Love the little pointy- roofed houses !

  3. I am enchanted by the little houses -I'm very much reminded of something you'd expect to see in Mirror Mask by Neil Gaiman or something from Tim Burton.

    Will you be painting these? I think they look great as they are, but can't wait to see what you come up with for them.:)

    Sorry your moon didn't come out unscathed, but the other moon face looks pretty cool.:)
