Lacy blue birds

Hurry up spring! We're nearly there...
To speed things up I made these springy lacy blue bird dishes which are now on sale in my PrinceDesign shop.


The texture is made by imprinting vintage lace doilies into the surface of soft clay. The soft blue glaze was rubbed into the surface to emphasize the detail, and I love the colour contrast with the creamy clay.
As ever, feel free to comment!

I just found your blog via your etsy shop, I adore your thigns!! I have a soft spot for birds myself, and always wished I could do pottery, perhaps when my kids are older. ;)

Thanks guys!
Find a pottery class if you can Lady Nunn! I know you'll love it and then maybe you could incorporate ceramic elements into your very lovely cards!

Jacklyn - thanks so much for the inclusion on your blog!
