One Of My Pottery Ventures

This is a white Roseville Vase that had a little chunk gone and a hairline crack.

This is a beautiful Weller Vase and it had a couple of chunks gone out of it.

The third is another Roseville planter and the chip at the bottom is the only chip it has. The other white spots are papers stuck to it.

The little green bowl had a chip at the rim. It was the smallest, but the hardest to repair. The paint was so hard to match.

This is what they look like when I finished. I'm working on some Roseville and Hull for myself right now. And the lady tonight is getting some more pieces for me to repair. She let several of her friends see my work and I will get some from them. Keep me in your prayers that I will start getting a lot of repair work. I worked very hard in my classes to learn to do this so I could support myself.

I hope you all have a wonderful day tomorrow.

Pat, I'd love to hear more on this topic. I always look at the chipped and cracked things in the shops because they are often the only ones I can afford! I never imagined that these things can be fixed so well. You do a beautiful job. I'll bet it involves a lot of hard work and skill! Do tell us more if you get a chance. Have a great weekend!
