A photo a day in May – Something you made

Friday 18 May

I made this!  Not the pitcher itself, but I painted the bees and ladybirds on it using my little chap’s thumb-prints as a starting point and then painting the detail on by hand with a fine brush.  We had a lovely afternoon at the pottery studio, doing hand and foot prints too, and they glazed and fired everything for us.  Very pleased with the result.  I’m going to put some cut flowers in it.

    Oh that is so cute! I love the little bees and lady bugs!

    • Thanks Zazzy. It was great fun to make, very calming. After taking the little man’s thumb prints, my husband took him home, so I had peace and quiet to just enjoy it. Wish I had space for my own kiln, now!

    I love it. What an innovative idea to use the little chap’s fingerprints, and what a wonderful keepsake too. x
