Dorothee Golz - Modern twist on Old Masters

I love Dorothee Golz's modern take on the old classics. Durer is probably my favourite, but to be honest I love them all.

My Ceramic Pieces - Glazing

Just before holiday break I have managed to glaze some of my pieces. I wanted to duplicate the effect achieved on small test bowl, unfortunately with no luck. The small bowl was glazed with Bottle Green and then dipped in Yellow. The effect of running Yellow was exactly what I was after. Unfortunately I think the top glaze on oven dish was to thinly put on, so the Yellow has not run, but rather disappeared. I should get used to failure. Second oven dish is sprayed the other way round, Bottle Green on top of Yellow.

Tuz przed przerwa wakacyjna udalo mi sie poszkliwic czesc moich prac. Chcialam zduplikowac efekt jaki udalo mi sie osiagnac na malej miseczce, no ale jak zwykle bezskutecznie. Miseczka byla pociagnieta Zielenia Butelkowa, pozniej zamoczona w Zolci i wlasnie efekt splywajacej zolci chcialam skopiowac. Niestety mam wrazenie, ze wierzchnia warstwa szkliwa byla za cienka, wiec zolc nie pociekla a zniknela w zieleni. Powinnam juz sie przyzwyczaic do tego, ze jestem noga w szkliwieniu. Drugie naczynie do pieczenia zostalo pociagniete szkliwami na odwrot, czyli Zielen Butelkowa na Zolci.

Old Kitchen

We've got today talking about blackboards in a kitchen, so I dug up pictures of my now old kitchen (present kitchen is non existent, as it is all in flat pack in my living room (grrr! 5 weeks without kitchen can drive one mad!))... well, hopefully by the end of next week I will have my kitchen back... or else!

When we've moved in (in 2003), the kicthen looked like so:


A lick of paint on walls and cupboard and new counters and it looked like so:




Gadalysmy dzisiaj na forum o czarnych tablicach w kuchni, wiec przekopalam moj komputer i zewnetrzne dyski (?) w poszukiwaniu zdjec mojej starej kuchni (obecna kuchnie nie istnieje, albowiem jest w kartonach w duzym pokoju (wrrrr! 5 tygodni bez kuchni moze czlowieka do szalu doprowadzic)) ... w przyszlym tygodniu powinnam miec kuchnie wykonczona... a jak nie, to...!

Na pierwszym zdjeciu jest zdjecie kuchni w stanie, w jakim byla gdy sie tylko wprowadzilismy. Na kolejnych zdjeciach jest kuchnia po pomalowaniu scian i szafek oraz z nowymi blatami.

Shopping Time!

We are soon finishng our building extention, so it's time to start shopping.

I have found these charming armchairs on ebay. They are almost perfect, just ever so slightly too girly for my boys;). Fortunately seller offers made to order service, so I have chosen some grey based fabrics from Cath Kidston, Vanessa Arbuthnott and Clarke and Clarke.


Za troszke konczymy remont i pora juz zaczac kupowac nowe rzeczy dla domu.

Te urocze fotele znalazlam na ebay. Sa prawie idealne, moze troche tylko za kobiece dla moich chlopakow;) Na cale szczescie sprzedajacy oferuje mozliwosc wyboru tkanin, wiec zdecydowalam sie na szarosci z kolekcji Cath Kidston, Vanessa Arbuthnott and Clarke and Clarke.
