There is a lot going on this week besides Make it Yourself Monday. There is Iditarod, St. Patrick's Day, and the Ides of March, among other things. Me thinks this calls for a celebration, don't you? I am celebrating by doing a pottery giveaway. There is nothing I like better to make myself than a fun ceramic form. Last week we made colanders in my "Jazz up the Kitchen" class, so I am going to offer this lovely blue one for one lucky winner.
This porcelain, food/dishwasher safe colander is the perfect size to hold a couple pints of fresh picked berries, or a bag of apples. It could also be used by a knitter/crocheter as a yarn bowl--simply run your yarn through any one of its myriad holes.
If you aren't into the fruit or yarn, you could also put a candle in it and use it as a luminary.
To enter the giveaway, simply post a comment below with your name and describe a favorite piece of pottery you own. I will do a randomly generated drawing for a winner on Monday, March 21st.
