In high school I took a “doomed from the start” pottery class, I had loads of ideas but no skill (or patience to learn) to speak of. My creations were hideous to put it mildly, but I’ve found something that even I should be able to do. This lacy pottery is made with craft porcelain and potter Maggie Weldon has graciously shared her method of making the beautiful pottery on her website. The pieces are delicate, don’t need firing and if you are on the vintage bandwagon, will fit right up your alley. So take a look.
Well ladies & gentlemen….the time has finally come
