I  pulled some leaves from My English Ivy vines & pressed them into fresh clay. Then  I fashioned a vine & attached them.  Since my clay instructor was afraid the result was too fragile to put into the Kiln, I even made a separate tray to put it on for the first firing.  Wanting something more unusual, I used a golden color rather than a green.  The result is.....different.  It can be set on a table or hung by the loop in the stem.

That is fantastic.  The curves in the shapes of the leaves are wonderful, but my favorite part is the pretty golden color -- that was a really smart choice.  Very appropriate for September and the oncoming start of fall!
