  • A couple weeks ago we made the beginning stages of a decorative log candle. Today, we are going to complete that project. If you didn't read Part 1, follow this link Functional and Decorative Log Candle - Part 1, to take a look.

    I'm going to show you how to add the flower, use underglaze to give it a rustic finish, and explain the firing process I used for this beauty, so grab your coffee and follow me to the studio!

    If you followed along with part 1 and already made the log, this is where you want to be... if you haven't made the log yet, follow the link above to make the log, then join us back here to finish it up.

      […] Big Ceramic Store: Functional and Decorative Log Candle – Part 2 […]

  • While preparing for a craft show this week, I was wondering... "What can we do to help boost our sales this year?" I took inventory of the items we would be offering at the show and decided to venture into soap making. "Why," you ask???

    Well, we offer several different styles of soap dishes, shaving mugs, and containers that soaps look great in, so why not have soap available to go with them?


    Today's post is all about some little tricks to help you sell your wares... so grab a pencil and paper and jot down a few notes!

      […] Big Ceramic Store: Boost Your Pottery Sales By Adding Accompanying Items […]

  • Who doesn't love a beautiful candle? Not only do they add character to your home, but they work well in a power outage! Don't depend on those generic candles you picked up at the grocery store... keep one on display and it's at the ready if needed.

    Today's project is a little tougher than some that we've done in the past but it's well worth the effort! Ps... we will begin the project today and finish it off in Part 2.

    So grab your coffee, put on your best creative hat, and follow me to the studio!

  • With early summer fruit starting to ripen on the vines a lot of folks are digging out their handed down family recipes and baking up a storm! Instead of laying that old recipe card on the counter, why not make yourself (friends/family too) a beautiful recipe card holder?

    You don't use recipe cards... you use a cookbook instead? Well, just increase the size of the design, and it will accommodate those books just as nicely as it will the cards.

    Are you ready to make a super easy project that will brighten up your counter and last a lifetime? Heck, you could even hand the holder down with the recipe cards you've cherished forever.

    PS... I'm using a brown stoneware clay for this project, however; you can make it out of whatever clay you work with.
