I love the dragonfly box!!!!! What glaze did you use? Did you make the mold for the dragonfly sprig or is it a commercial press-mold?

Thanks so much! I love it too - it's actually a flower pot that I did for my mom. I used an opalescent glaze called "moss green", I think it's made by Amaco. The clay itself is red earthenware - basically terracotta - it was a wonderful surprise that it turned out such a deep red/brown.

The dragonfly isn't made with a mold, just pieces of clay that I cut from a slab (or rolled into a rope) then appliqued onto the sides of the box (built around a Kleenex box). I did use a crackle textured rubber stamp for the wings, but the rest of the detail was carved out with sgraffito tools.
