My dried lifeless leaves collection
Hand built ceramic leaves even now damp.
A greater hand created leaf
Bisque ware leaf fired one particular time
Some hand developed bouquets in the foreground fired after
When it came to glazing what I created I was a little bit stymied at 1st. I determined to test some underglazes which I do not commonly like since they are so rigid. But I wanted all those people markings to present up by way of the other glazes I used. So I tried out out a black and a blue. I was not unsatisfied with the end result.

a huge hollow bead surrounded by 2 cabochons Wild Grass texture All over again I utilized the black underglaze -2 coats- and then wiped it off and additional coloured glazes to the wiped off regions.
