I managed to finish the second batch of my ornaments in time for Christmas. I strung them on matching blue ribbons for hanging.

We even had some wonderful snow in the past days that put me in a wintry mood but it's melting away today.

A few days ago I made some simple paper snowflakes and hung them on my wall. These should stay a bit longer.

Einer von den Guten

Kurt aka Roger Beathacker ist tot. Ich habe ihn nicht gekannt, aber ich bin traurig. "Nebenbei bemerkt...", sein Blog, gehörte zu meiner regelmäßigen und hochgeschätzten Lektüre und ist seit vielen Monaten hier verlinkt. Lest seine klugen Artikel!
Hier ein Nachruf von Roberto von "ad sinistram", der bessere Worte findet als ich es könnte.

Christmas is coming

I'm still here and I'm still in a very autumnal mood. But as it is St. Nicholas' Day today it feels appropriate to show some of the Christmas ornaments I made in class. Some others are still in the making. Everyone was busy with cookie cutters making the pottery look like a bakery, so I gave them a try as well.

The glaze is a thin layer of white that makes them look almost edible.
