A Dandelion Blows....Not only in the Spring!!

A dear friend is setting up her pottery studio for full time creating...and I get to help!! Yeah!! Gina,'t that just the grandest name???), will be enthralling you with her unique clay visions.

Gina does a sea scape casserole that is perfect as a display piece and doubles as just the smartest dish to cook and serve yummy homemade mac and cheese, or any casserole recipe of your choice. These pieces get snapped up quick at local art fairs, or when she lists them on Etsy.
( Must add that Gina was first selling her pottery under the Etsy name of Carolina Clay Daze for awhile. can go there to see the beautiful casseroles she has sold in the past year.)

Her new creative idea incorporates Beatle's lyrics on the bottoms of small shallow serving pieces. Glazed on top with blues or greens, the bottoms are left naked...and delight with a special lyric. I'll bet she would even take a special request...if you tell her I sent you:)

Hope you will drop by and watch as her shop begins to fill up...with work from her very on studio. I promise... you will not be disappointed!! Click on title above to go directly to her Etsy shop.

I hate to cook...surprised? But holding one of these pieces...I day dream about what would look good served in one of these sea inspired pieces. From scratch Mac and Cheese usually wins out. But my son's favorite is a Broccoli and Cheese thingy I do when he comes home for a visit. And even he notices the serving dish!!

Congratulations my friend on your new studio...and being able to focus full time on your art!!!
