Vintage Tins

Old Rusty Tin with Vintage Contents

Another Old Rusty Tin With Vintage Contents




I've been having some fun filling up these old tins with vintage goodies, a perfect activity for a cold stormy day.  Reminds me of when I was a child and I would spend hours rummaging through my mum's button tin.  Ideal for mixed media or altered art projects, they are in the shop now and you can click here if you are interested in seeing the full contents...xx

Offering Bowl



Bronze Clay Offering Bowl

 
I made this little wabi-sabi offering bowl today from bronze clay. Hopefully you can make out the leaf imprint on the inside.  As it came out of the kiln, it had gorgeous gold and copper tones so I left it untouched. The texture is rough because it hasn't been polished but I think this adds to the feeling of it being like an ancient relic, freshly excavated from the soil.  Small enough to be held in the palm of my hand, it's going on my mantelpiece to hold a little piece of sea glass as my offering.  This was a practice but I will make more...
