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

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