OK, new year, new pots and ideas, right?  I told you as 2014 ended I was becoming interested in not only east Asian celadon pottery (lt. green/blue/grey), again, but also trying to do a little of the carving some of those pots had. In my limited way.  Leaves.  My GOSH they did a pretty job of it, right?  I can try, a little.... these little cuties also happen to be available at my etsy shoppe....

Yep, you are having success with leaves, and combining your critter addition is a great idea. Have you tried some of the stylus type carving tools...great variety of lines available.

I love the froggy and leaf mug.

Ditto Meesh.
