Ceramic Owl

There is an Owl contest over at Artisan Whimsey, a new website for jewelry component makers of all mediums as well as for Jewelry Designers. 

I was hesitant to enter at first because I was afraid that my owl would look too much like someone elses.  However, I think I was able to craft a unique owl in the end. 

I used a glaze called "Waterfall".  It shows up nicely on this porcelain glaze.  I used sprigs of clay and textured with a skewer.  Both the front and the back have this same owl shape.

Voting begins on Artisan Whimsey on October  28th at Midnight and continues until October 30th midnight.  The winners will be posted on October 30th midnight.  There are two categories: one for component makers and the other for jewelry designs, a nice blend of participants I think.

Here's the link to vote at:  http://artisanwhimsy.ning.com/page/hooters .  I would urge you to vote for mine but there are already some spectacular entries posted. Just participate and vote for your favorite.  Then leave a post here and I'll enter you in a drawing to win this particular owl.  The voting doesn't start for two more days so bookmark this page to come back and vote and leave a comment at that time.

Yes, that's right, you don't have to vote for this owl but you can definitely have a chance to win it!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I love your owl - you certainly will have my vote.

  2. Your owl is so "gosh-darn" cute! Too early to vote, but just had to get my feelings out there! ha!

  3. I love your little owl. I didn't have any owls to participate with, but I'm anxious to see them all on Artisan Whimsy. So many creative people. And thanks for letting me participate in Shary'ls Bead packet design challenge. Had a ball with your beads.

  4. I voted. I was the first one to vote and you got the first vote. Just so you know. Good luck to you.

  5. Sorry to be so late in getting this done. I've been off the computer for a few day! But I put in numbers 1-3 in the random number generator. Sharyl is 1, Kay is 2, and Jean is 3, and the generator picked: #3, so Jean, you are the winner of this owl.

    I have two more owls that are slightly different. I will be sending one also to Sharyl and Kay. Sharyl I have your snail mail addy but Kay would you send me yours: nkp@nkpdesigns DOT com

    Thank you for leaving such kind comments. This was fun! -- Natalie

  6. Thanks so much. Now I'll have an owl to play with. :)
