Frustrations,Creations and Festivities

Frustrations,Creations and Festivities Make an Interesting Life

Life has been big as usual over the last fortnight.
 We have had my eldest sons wedding in the preparation
     and I wanted so much for the day to be perfect for them.

As the caterer for the 70 guests I had my work cut out.
     I had decided to make some ceramics bowls and platters 
to contain the large amounts of food.

So of course, as Murphy's Law would have it,
when it came to the final glaze firing my kiln decided 
that it was in need of some help.

 Fortunately I have some wonderful friends
        and after almost giving up on having the pots 
       for the wedding our friend Kath,who is also 
     the art teacher at the school that my daughter 
   goes to, said she would be happy to help me 
         out with a firing in return for a firing I had done 
     for one of her HSC students a couple of years 
ago when they had no kiln.


So the pots were fired,
the food was made 
and the wedding was had.


Though it was just a little crrrrrrrazy in the kitchen!!!


                                                         It was a delightful ceremony




                                                   The cake had been hand painted by their friends
                                                                          Toni and Karena
                                                                           It was stunning!


                                                            Smiles of love filled the air

                                                      The littlies had a lovely time :)



A creative and happy wedding 
and delightful memories were made.
all the wedding photos were taken by my brother Chris

                                                But that is not all that has been happening....

                                              My daughter has been sculpting in paper clay
                                                      a school project that she brought home
                                                                         to complete
                                                           I think she is BRILLIANT!

                                     and our ground works have been continuing
                                           and I now have a nice PIT..... for a firing!

                                                      HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY!!!

                                                            and now that I can take a breath
                                                I will have a look at what the Mud Colony 
                                                            potters have been up to.


  1. what a happy day and beautiful photos to remember it by... Love that head sculpture.. what a talented daughter you have...
    a little envious of that pit :^)

  2. What a lovely way to celebrate a wedding....made all the more special by being able to present the food in your bowls and plates. The cake is perfect for a wedding.
    Talent appears to run in your family.

  3. Ditto from me! I love the photo you used as your MC link. And look forward to seeing what comes out of that pit.
