I just got these out of the kiln last night. They're based on the different animal species that like to hang out in my backyard. Smiley I'd love to know what you think! And which one is your favorite?

Beautiful!  Looks like there's the animals have some etched dimensionality -- yes?  You mentioned you were doing sgraffito on the cup that showed up in the LV swap thread....  And on the assumption that you're using doilies for the rest of the design, how do you do the stenciling without either leaving an impression of the doily or smearing the black glaze?

Aaaaw, I love them!

Those are pretty rad. Doilies! Don't know how you did it but they;re genius! And yes, your backyard must be amazing! The only animals I ever see in my backyard are a dog, some pigeons, and my kids. Wink
