One of my favorite things to make is outdoor decor.  Here's a few bird feeders, fresh out of the kiln.  The first made from light brown stoneware which is so nice to work with, on the wheel and handbuilding.

I don't work with porcelain a lot, I find it very hard to manage but I do love how the glazes turn out:

Oh wow, those are gorgeous! I especially love the one with the ginkgo leaves (at least, they look like ginkgo to me), I thought the leaves were real when I first looked at it! The glaze on the second one is super gorgeous though, I love them both!

They are ginkgo leaves!  Not real, I have a cookie cutter with a vein stamp.  2 colors of underglaze and it looks almost real.  Cheesy
