We have lots clay in our yard and also lots of fire ant mounds. Jeff dug up an abandoned mound and bisque fired it. It's still quite fragile, but I thought it looked pretty cool. He has bisque fired dirt dauber nests in the past. Those fire quite sturdy, because they are probably made with the clay from the studio.
If you are celebrating Easter this weekend, I wish you a happy one. We have a group coming for lessons in the morning and in the evening we will cook a ham dinner. The Easter Bunny may even bring some candy, since we have been a good boy and girl. ;-)
