where was the picture taken?

so, was it worn in a wedding, or is a theoretical wedding dress?

I love the idea and the roses.  The stone texture of the skirt is interesting, but a rock skirt doesn't scream "wedding" to me.

They're all lovely, but my favorite is the heavily textured rainbow one.  Makes me want to do something similar in ceramic.  Nice work, thanks for sharing!

Thanks, guys!  Now I'm working on a safari bowl for a friend whose birthday is the day after the dragon lady's.

This is a birthday gift for my year-of-the-dragon friend.  It's about 14" long.


I used a deep plastic platter with rippled edge as a drape mold for a slab.  Low fire clay and glazes.
The decoration is underglaze, with a clear shiny glaze over.  The white spots are reflections; I took the picture at night, under a chandelier...

This was really fun, I've been doing a lot of watery blues, it's nice to get some hot colors going!

Birthday is more than a month away, I don't know if I can keep from showing this to her!

Also, I finally finished the Crane Pot https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=452108.0

In progress pix


I moved the original post to reply #3 so I could show off the pretty new pictures!

the underglaze is pretty much finished.  Some of the pen is still showing; those black outlines will be gone after firing.  

I loved doing the bird feathers, the flowers were OK, but the leaves were a real pain!  

Note:  underglaze is chalky, the final glaze will make the pieces gleam and the colors a little brighter.

based purely on your posts, I just bought Dr. Potter.  Sounds good!

Very sweet!

an alternative to a wax pencil for teensy things is a piece of spaghetti; dampen the end and it will pick up rhinestones, tiny beads, whathaveyous.

do you have a word processing program?  you can usually print in a tiny font for professional, legible words.
