Yellow heart shaped earring holder

I use this to store my earrings by my bed but I originally made it to be a tea light holder.
This was very easy to make. I rolled out some clay, making sure it was deep enough for a tea light. I placed some lace on top of the clay and rolled over it with a rolling pin to get the lace pattern embedded in the clay. Then used I used a heart shaped cookie cutter to make the shape. I then used a cut away tool to scoop out the hollow in the middle for a tea light. Smooth the edges around the heart and you’re done 🙂 pop in the kiln then glaze it how you like. Use a pale glaze instead of underglaze though- they accentuate the pattern much more than an underglaze.
Happy making!

Button Inspiration

Feeling inspired to make these in my next ceramic class. The buttons are in the kiln but I’m yet to paint them. Love the idea of hand drawing on the cards.
