Gather Wild Flowers, Drink Moonlight, Thank the Stars, Remember to Dream, To Laugh, To Sing and Most of all Pretend you Have Wings.. and Use Them.......Laurel Burch...

Laurel Burch was an awesome artist whom I had the pleasure of meeting at an art show in Westwood, CA back in the 80's. Have followed her work through out the years.

I enjoy making many things and one of them is decals on china. I did the rose decals on the first picture and fired them in my kiln, except for the plate. At one time was selling my china in shops but no longer do. I even added the decals to the candle. The second picture I just had to share is of a lovely tea set that my dear mother gave me back in the early 60's and it has a very special place in my heart. Of course mom is no longer here with me but have many wonderful memories of our times together and very often enjoying tea. She loved having tea in the afternoon.

I had not been posting due to the fact that I just got over the shingles, not a happy experience. Before the shingles we took a little trip up north to Los Olivos, in one of their many shops I saw little blue birds like these that I just loved. Well I have a girl friend who does lovely work in ceramics and I asked her to please make me the little blue birds and she did in different sizes, now have them everywhere in my garden. Here are just a few of them. Look at the cute chubby one in the back.
