Sweet little trays

Fired version of some of the little candy dishes/trays I am making. These have small feet to elevate them off the table. I suppose you could use them for soap dishes and candles as well. This is a white clay body with dark slip painted for the vine design.
Book for inspiration for these.

Working on water and pine images.

Waiting for the feet.

Drying version . Brown clay with white slip background, cobalt slip for water, green wash for foliage and dark slip for pine needles. I was so pleased with these in the greenware state. Hope they meet my expectations in the glazed.

Those greenware ones look great! Can't wait to seem them when they are finished.

Hi Vicki, your trays are beautiful. I love the subtle green you have achieved on the fired ones and I look forward to seeing the pine needle ones too. Also I like your bottle forms below - the unusual shapes and off center decorations and cutouts - keeps my eye moving around the pieces - these are very nice - can't wait to see how you glaze these.

Thanks everybody. I'll post pics when they all get fired.

Jen--I'm officially off pottery duty for the holidays. Will start to go through withdrawal around New Years, I'm sure.
