I keep calling ceramics "sarcasms" for some reason. My parents laugh at me every time I say that. It is pretty funny. We picked up the ceramic owl I got to paint during my sleepover weekend. We went to a place called "Paint This". I painted the owl first and then they cooked it in a kiln where it came out shiny and glossy. I might make a bowl next time we go. There are a lot of choices. My dad painted a vase. My friend Zamia painted a turtle for her mom.
