For some time I have been wondering about other methods of making leaves and bouquets. I have a selection of dried leaves that have fallen off a rubber plant I have in the residence. I really like their graceful movement and lyrical traces and type.

Bisque ware leaf fired one particular time
Some hand built flowers in the foreground fired once
When it arrived to glazing what I built I was a bit stymied at 1st. I made a decision to test some underglazes which I do not commonly like since they are so stiff. But I preferred all those markings to display up by way of the other glazes I applied. So I experimented with out a black and a blue. I was not unsatisfied with the end result.
A hand constructed flower surrounded by wild cone flower textured beads. The black underglaze arrived through nicely I imagine.
a massive hollow bead surrounded by 2 cabochons Wild Grass texture Yet again I used the black underglaze -2 coats- and then wiped it off and added colored glazes to the wiped off parts.
Here is a selection of the leaves and 1 hand developed flower glazed
And one more watch of the leaves.
What am I heading to do with all of these creations? I approach to use them in some of my no cost form peyote stitch jewelry. And some I have positioned in my Etsy store.
