An Outdoor Ceramic Seat

This garden seat had broken while being bisque fired, so Bill has glued it back together, filled it with urethane foam and painted it in a"graffiti style" with two layers and types of paint.

It is now a seat for us next to the stream at Christian's farm, where our dog likes to play with the fish and frogs.

We have been redirecting this stream some to keep the far side from eroding away too much. This is a very peaceful place to sit and listen to the stream and woodland noises.

Bill is now making ceramic garden tables...

Restoring A Schoolhouse Light

When Bill bought our first farmhouse, he also bought eight schoolhouse pendant lamps from a Princeton University sale of no longer needed items. We used them all over the house and have now given one to Christian to use in his farmhouse staircase. Bill and Christian polished, rewired and sealed this solid brass lamp which pivots and will light the space well with a strong LED bulb. Christian moved the electrical box first to center the light better.
