five of fifty two

This was a very happy kiln opening. 
from the left:
1- underglaze transfer zinnias on stoneware.  I reglazed it, so I did, indeed, work on it in 2013
2- sprig molded fiddle heads on porcelain.
3-vintage hobnail glass inspired stoneware.  I immediately made a second version of this that I'm even happier with.
4- etched and inlay on pale blue underglaze over stoneware.
5- the watercolor style underglazes over stoneware, based on a friend's vintage hand-painted English Ironstone pitcher.  This one is my favorite.

These are all so fabulous that I can't even pick one that I like the best! Melissa, you are a marvel!

I've got to say that the one that really draws me is the hobnail one- Just want to pick it up and feel the texture.

These are fab!
My fave is the fiddlehead one. I used the fiddlehead platter you made on Sunday for lobster brunch. Six people and we cooked those babies right on up!
Love, LAM

Dare I say the Marion-inspired one looks a bit like something Mrs. Patmore might use?
