Ceramic Vintage Coal Iron Box

ironCollageWell, in recognition of this almost vintage ironing contraption, I created the ceramic iron box seen in both the pictures on this post. Stains, engobes, and underglazes were used and it went through couple of firings to give it the weathered look.The lid opens but it is not functional in terms of ironing. Though it could be used to store nicknacks I would let it majestically sit on my table connecting me to those days of having my clothes ironed by the family down my street.

About anointedartist

I am a free-spirited person who enjoys the little things in life as much as the big ones that cross my path. As wife and mother of two wonderful kids, I have learned to take into stride the joys and pains of nurturing my family with laughter and tears. From being a stay-at-home mom for a long time, I have now extended my arms into the community to envelope kids with special needs and work with them. My soul takes delight in creating pieces of art in the form of pottery, card-making, crafting, knitting, crocheting, and list goes on. My long-standing wish to learn pottery-making took form and I have made quite a few interesting projects and love them. I also do prophetic arts (painting) along with my husband at our church during worship now and then and enjoy it. I believe that most of my inspirations come for my Creator and I am just being instrumental in revealing it to others. I feel honored to be used as His anointed vessel to display the creativity He has invested in me.
