When I approached my local Kingsport Senior Center about taking a beginner’s clay building class, I never dreamed I’d one day be selling my pieces. Mostly, I give them as gifts, because I get lots of pleasure out of hearing the joy in the voices of those who receive them. There are times, however, when people actually write me or come by to see if I’d be willing to sell pieces they’ve seen in photos.
Below are pictures of works I’ve done. Some have been sold. Some have been selected for gift giving and many of the pieces shown here can be made again.
There is one thing to note. No two pieces, no matter how carefully crafted are going to look exactly like each other. I haven’t gotten to the point so I can make a complete exact set of anything yet, and knowing how the clay can behave, I’m not sure that’s doable without a lot of equipment and knowhow.
In the meantime, I’d like to share this wonderful talent with you.
I’ve many Christmas decorations ready for sale. One is shown in the photo below. I will also be making more of the dishes shown here, as well as more pinch pot art and other fun pieces as well.
If you’d like to see my entire collection currently available, you may contact me at: pattysworlds.com
I look forward to hearing from you.
Please come back often, as I’ll be updating the page from time to time with new photos for your perusing pleasure.
If you live in the Kingsport Tennessee area, and you’ve always wanted to try your hand at clay work, head on over to the Kingsport Senior Center, sign up and you too can know the joy of the feel of clay in your hands.
Take heed, clay building is not like playing with playdough. It can at times be hard and tedious. But if you’re willing to learn, there are fine ladies here willing to teach, so come and give this and all the other amazing classes offered a try.
May Harmony find You.
