Instructions

  1. Roll out a slab about ¼”-1/2” thick.
  2. Place found leaves onto the slab and gently press down with your hand. Once they are secure, roll your rolling pin across them to get an even texture transfer.
  3. Lay into a slump mold or shallow bow to form. I put 2 in at a time, overlapping the bottoms and slipping and scoring to attach them. Shift each pair of leaves as you build up the bow and attach to those under it.
  4. Let set up briefly until it can hold form on its own
  5. Attach a coil for the foot.
  6. Loosely cover with plastic and allow to slow dry.
  7. Once completely dry, fire to shelf cone 04.

GLAZING

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque, moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Apply 1 coat of UG-50 Jet Black to the entire piece and let dry. Use a moist sponge to wipe away the glaze, leaving some behind in the textures.
  3. Apply 2-3 coats of EL-133 Autumn to the entire piece.
  4. Let dry completely.
  5. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06/05.
