Every year Wendy and I go to The Painted Plate before Christmas to make gifts for family members. The Painted Plate is a ‘paint-your-own’ ceramic shop, offering a variety of greenware, glazes, sponges, stamps, templates and other tools. Ever year, we take a day and get creative, applying glaze to greenware. For the past 3 years we’ve gotten Zelly involved.
