My flying duck obsession continues...

Some call it OCD; I prefer to call it art. Well design anyway. I thought they'd make a cool image for dinnerware too, so here are my first flying duck dessert plates...
The ducks were stamped into the surface of the clay, and then filled with coloured glaze. I added a glossy clear glaze over the top surface to make them nice to use for food. As I'm vegetarian they are the only ducks you'll find on my plate :) I love the seven inch plate size; it is the size of plate I use the most as I am a real snack addict. It's a nice size for a sandwich or a crumpet or two...
I thought I'd try them out in blue and green, but I'm temped to try other colours too... Red or black maybe. Opinions are welcome as always!

Beautiful. You know how I love the ducks! Glad to see you are back on the grid. Just let me know when you have a total ready for me to pay you. And send me pictures. I want to show them off as soon as possible.

Hi Danielle,
Thanks!
I sent you a message through etsy with more details, but just so you know, I have listed the flock for you in the reserved items section of my shop and there are a few pics too!
