I made a trinket box for Samsara in the most recent Winter Hippy swap.  One of the themes she mentioned she likes are lotus blossoms, so I went with that.  The reddish brown is done with iron oxide with no overglaze.  The blue glaze is called Floating Blue.  I like the contrast.

Very nice! I love Floating Blue, it was one of my favorite glazes when I took Ceramics in college.  Smiley

That's fabulous! Can you tell me how the lid stays on the box? Did you put oblong pieces of clay to keep it on?

I always have problems with that.

Thanks Hippie9. I rolled out a coil of clay then attached it in a rectangular shape to the underside of the lid, just inside where the lid sits on the box.  I hope that makes sense!
