As a snowbird wintering in Florida, I've missed my summer pottery classes.  Fortunately, I've found a local studio so I can now play in the dirt year round. 

One of my first finished pieces is about 10" x 4".  I pressed banches (Cedar?) into the wet clay & attached flowers & leaves that I modeled separately.   I wanted soft colors over all but didn't get quite enough green on the leaves.  My instructor suggested I add another coat to them & refire so I think I'll try it.  Other than that, I'm well pleased with it.  I didn't want a hole showing on the top so I'll either attach a hanger to the back with epoxy or display it on an easel.
