little dahlhaus is on it's way...

 
Do you remember my 'mold-making project' that I've been working on? I've been working on a little mini-series of a child's breakfast and lunch set while brushing up on my mold-making skills at the same time.   While I've had a few plaster disasters along the way,  it has been a good little project to embark on.  And the boys are loving each design that I bring home for them so that's a good sign.  I just finished the mold for the cup and should be able to have a whole little place-setting finished in the next couple of weeks.  Glaze-wise, I've been working on a lady-bug, a turtle and this mama Owl and her baby so far.  My method (painted with Cone 6 glazes using my 'stencil/masking' technique) makes them food-safe, dishwasher safe, microwave safe and all-around kid friendly, especially because they stack and have sturdy bottoms and sides for little clumsy hands.  There's more to come so stay tuned...
