the birds and the bees: making...flowers!



Well, trying to make flowers.
You have seen I have had some luck painting underglaze flowers in a watercolor-y way, so I decided to try to cover pots with flowers.  I will find out later today how that glaze firing went with THESE pieces...one thing is true, most glazing I do is a quick dunk in color, but this takes FOREVER, painting flowers...great fun though :)
Have a super Monday!

Wow, can't wait to see the finished items! It was really interesting to see the artwork being done before firing.

It sure is work. Was hoping to see a bee, or frog? Can't wait to see the glazed finished products!

What fun to see a bit of the process behind the work itself. Thanks, Gary!
