So, in an effort to be realistic, *cough, cough*, if I could get my hands on a little clay this year, I'd be one happy chappy. And, Lordy, if anything came out of the kiln looking as half decent as the items below, I'd be ecstatic.
I'm potty for interesting garden pots, and love that the shape and glaze of these hanging pots. And, please, please, please, if you're as much a basketcase over woven things as I am, click the image source to see a perfect combination of pottery and basketweaving.

Crispy french toast sounds delicious but what really caught my eye was that plate and the ceramic mug. Warm, chunky, hearty - all words that come to mind. I'm not sure I can skill up to throwing plates and mugs by the end of the year, but here's hoping I might be able to use the colours for glaze inspiration.

The colours. The texture. Sigh. I find bravery in being confident enough to let such simple form stand on its own.
What about you? What is it you want to have achieved by the year's end?
