A Woven Basket or a Pastry

Here's one of my finished ceramic pieces. I was going for a basket but my art teacher thought it looks like a pastry. It will make a nice cookie jar.

A Christmas Canvas

I have been sick with pneumonia for the last little while and am finally recovering, but while I was sick, watching movies on the couch, I painted a canvas for Christmas. Not much, but hope you enjoy.
