    Thanks Caroline and Richard. At present am working on very small, intricately detailed
    porcelain jewelry. It is bright white and takes color well. Hard to work with but beautiful when it
    doesn't crack ! Not sure about a mug, Richard ... but let me know what style and color you might like and I'll see what I can do :)

    Wonderful hobby you have Jackie, where do you get your clay from? Ive been processing my own clay from out of one of our paddocks, I'm working on making firebricks to build a fire outdoor BBQ.

    Hi Richard ... Thank you ... yes, it keeps me busy as the ideas never end! Trouble is, so many items
    pile up. I just give them away. That's the reason I'm now working small and it's such a relief to not have any more big items. Love the white porcelain and it's a challenge to make the finished item, but am getting there. I buy my clay from a small shop in town. Would love to source my own but the porcelain is not a "found" type of clay. Good luck with the BBQ ... sounds great!

    Art keeps my mind off the wild times of our world !!!
