What a fun Christmas morning I've had! I just snuggled down with a nice hot cup of coffee and some home made oatmeal raisin cookies and watched more than two hours of Jana making a beautiful Arabesque cane. I ordered the DVD as a Christmas present to myself (grin)... and it came in the mail yesterday.

Now keep in mind that I don't make very good canes (actually they're awful)... but Jana's video is so precise and explains things so well that I finally think I understand the process much better. After the holidays are all over and I have some peaceful time to clay, I'm actually going to attempt to make my own design of an Arabesque cane. Never thought I would say that, but yes... me making a cane... I think I can do it! Now, of course I don't expect it to be near as good as the master's, but I am at least not afraid to give it a try.

I really enjoyed this video, and feel like I got a lot out of it.

Thanks Jana!!

You deserve that special "treat"..enjoy it!  Hope you're having a great Christmas(I'm going over my sister's in a bit)  I have 3 whole days OFF & I'm going to try to actually get some real serious crafting done.  I need the peace & quiet.   Talk to you later(Oh,I checked out your flickr stuff...neat,can't wait to see some of your canes up there,too.)

You're so brave, Chris! Glad you got your Christmas present on time - and lucky you with those oatmeal raisin cookies and a blankie! Sounds good to me about now....

I had a lovely morning, too, with so many fun presents, woo! Merry Christmas.

Now that sounds like a great New Year's eve... a glass of wine and a table full of clay! :)

You will love the DVD. I really cracked up when I watched her reduce that big cane on her basement floor. WHACK!!! lol

Well - that's brave, isn't it? Knowing that you ~might~ mess it up, but going forward anyway. (that's one of my troubles - being afraid to try. I have to force myself often to go forward.)

What fun to run across this thread....I'm so glad to know that you're liking the DVD, Chris, (and getting a kick out of me on the floor of the filming studio!....hey, in my book, whatever works!  and, a solid [especially cement] floor works beautifully, for so many reasons, when reducing a cane)...

would love to see pictures of your canes!!
