Last year we cleaned my husband's step-mother's house, who passed away. In the basement in an old dresser drawer was a cardboard box. Inside this box was an assortment of cotton doilies. I brought the box home, along with several other items from the house.
I like a few doilies to set on my dresser tops, but one can only have so many doilies. Then I remembered that I had made designs on some of my pottery by pressing a piece of webbing into the wet clay, like on this juice pitcher.

It wasn't long before I was pressing these doilies into clay for my toothbrush holder and Christmas ornaments.
There are many decorative pottery pieces I can make.
