Featured Seller

I wanted to show some amazing pieces of pottery! The first is a leaf, made using a real maple leaf!
The second item is a tiny bowl with sea green glaze.
These came from Carol at: www.carolbroadleypottery.etsy.com
Carol explains her process: "I always use maple leaves because they have such a pretty shape with all the points and great veins. I press the actual maple leaf into the clay, fire it with the leaves still on the clay (it just burns away). Then I color it with an oxide wash over the fired leaf, and fire it again to make the color permanent."
Stop by her shop and have a look at many other wonderful items that Carol makes! She's such a great talent and a great person to boot!

The leaf looks so life-like and the bowl is enchanting. Will have to give her shop a look.
