I saw a post about 2 weeks ago on Ceramic Arts Daily, and decided to try it out.
When I rolled the slab out I laid out a piece of batten burg lace on top of the clay to give it a little more interest.
One of the guys in my class suggested that since it looked like the flowers I do on other stuff, I should paint some underglaze on it before it's fired.
I made two of them, and so here's the second one with the underglaze. I'll post a picture after they're fired..
I hope that when they're done they can hold a 4" pot, so you can just plop something in. If that works I'm going to make some bigger ones for the Christmas amaryllis that I put in my entry way every year. Wouldn't that look cool?
