Bisque Stamp Organizer Dream Cart

John designed this custom cart with items purchased from Ikea. Raskog / Fira hybrid.  
I sanded the "Fira" boxes and finished them with heavy duty decoupage and paint.
    
John chopped a "Raskog" cart and fabricated wood clamps to secure the Fira boxes.


We added drawer dividers to help organize 
my hand carved clay stamps


I've been using it for a few months now and it's awesome!   Thank you John!!!!

God has certainly blessed me with a wonderful husband.

words on pottery

Faith Hope Love Mug

Summer has been a productive time in the studio.  Lots of flowers and ladybugs for inspiration. 
Stamped letters

I like inscribing words on some of my pots.  Inspiring or positive words. I use letter stamps, but sometimes the feeling is best conveyed if the word is handwritten. 
Handwriting on pottery

Anyone who has tried it, knows that handwriting on clay can be a little tricky.  I find that medium leather hard clay works best for handwriting.  Try not to over-think placement, size etc.  Just let the word flow spontaneously and natural.

Give it a try.  It's fun!

Peace & Love to all.
