Stunning work. I am thinking that I need to paint pastries and cakes for a while. Then the pottery captures my eye, and I think I need to begin collecting. Thanks for sharing these beautiful images.

I started a ceramics/pottery class this week. I can't say that I have ever enjoyed anything more. I don't know how to describe it, but I have found my hobby. I love sculpture and painting, but there is just something about what you can create that make it beautiful.
DO you think I like it, haha?
Beautiful post, Lisa.
Have a wonderful weekend.

I was not familiar with Maggie's cakes - they are truly works of art. I have long been a fan of Frances' work. I will now go to see your post about her - she is so talented!

Lisa I have long been familiar with Frances Palmers works! I adore them!

Maggie I had not heard of! Isn't this one of the greatest things about the blog world.

Lisa off to read more about Maggie, and I would just be in awe to have one of Frances' beaded works!

I just discovered your great blog & loved it. I'm just new into blogging & have just finished off my own blog on fashion & interior design.
I had a lot of fun putting it together. I would love your feedback on it if you've got a spare minute.
