When I was in High school in a ceramics class, my art teacher often let me work independently. One year she said – cookie cutters. And I was off and running. I still make a batch of (Ceramic) cookies for the tree each year.
I have cookie cutters that were my Grandmother’s Boesch’s and I have non traditional ones I have made for specific people: a violin, a Texas longhorn, a bat….
But my favorites are the seasonal motifs that everyone can enjoy, whether you celebrate Solstice, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa… gingerbread, snow men, moons and stars as we welcome back the sun after the longest night at Solstice.
I do sell some at my shows around this time of year, but I also give them as gifts! They are unglazed on the back as I think the minis ( shown above) make excellent gifts tags! Just personalize with Sharpie! I even took a “tray of cookies” to the wonderful staff at Playtime Doggy DayCare – Zoey’s home away from home!
Please take a few minutes to enjoy the offerings from my fellow Art Elements team mates and our guests! And Happy New Year!
