My Granny made many crocheted doilies; several, including this one in pic 1, have been passed down to me….. they are little reminders of her working very nimbly with just a crochet needle and a ball of thread to produce something very pretty.
The ladies’ hanky was hers but I don’t know if she made it or if it was gifted to her from a friend. She always carried a fancy hanky in her purse.
I made these pottery pieces in a college art class in 1989. They all started as a ball of clay and an assignment to create a functional teapot, a serving dish, and a niche with something inside it. Various pieces of equipment had to be mastered- I especially remember a pug mill to smoothly mix clay and a slab roller to roll a slab. ;^D
But prior to tackling those assignments, each student had to create a stamp to mark their work. Pic 2 shows mine.
These were some of my creations from that class…..
I hope you enjoy them! Comments welcome and appreciated.
