My ceramic gargoyle has been glazed!!
I made this while on my last prac, to further my knowledge in ceramics. 

This gargoyle will be used as a teaching resource for future teaching so I experimented with how different glazes look and I only glazed half of him so I can see the difference between glazing and not glazing.

Second-Hand Clothes Have Never Fit Better. Or Looked Quite So Fashionable. Amazing…

Jillian is a writer and designer who had faced some financial difficulties and decided to wade into second-hand clothing. She started buying cheap and old clothes and set herself on turning them into stylish new dresses. She said:

A few years ago, I decided I wanted to change the way the world thinks about fashion. I was worried about the impact on our planet as people tossed out their one-time-wear duds more and more quickly.

And it worked marvelously well…

Last weekend I drove down to Ballarat to visit my friend and along the way I got to see the submarine in Holbrook which has been yarn-bombed in yellow knitting to transform it into the ‘Yellow Submarine’.

It was amazing to see in real life!!!

Another great idea, turning a square scarf into a lovely top for summer!!
Will also be trying this out when we get to summer :D

Love this idea!! Turning a scarf into a summery vest, definitely trying this out when it warms up :D

No need for a separate craft room when you have an unused closet and a good organization plan. Memo boards, towel bars, paint pails and shoe caddies all become storage solutions for materials and other odds and ends.

I want this!

Love this idea!!!

Glazing Time!!
Here are some pics of glazing the clay gargoyle I made on my final prac.
This was an opportunity for me to learn about the various stages in making a clay object and have this a teaching resource for the next time I teach ceramics.
I glazed half the gargoyle so I could see the difference between glazing and not glazing.
The half I did glaze is about 6 different colours so I could have a range of colours for future reference.
I can’t wait to see what it looks like when it comes out of the kiln, as the colours look nothing like what they come out of the bottle. :D
