New From Old...

I don't always have time to create new designs, even though I have a sketch book and brain that is overflowing with ideas! Sometimes it feels good to take an old element and play with it a bit...

This is my basic rose that is now a 2 hole link. It will be glazed in a pale cream so the tan color of the clay will pop through in what will hopefully be a lovely shabby chic way...

I have dreams that the leaf pattern below will pop with a bit of soft green glaze...
 This bee has not gotten the three hole treatment before. I may add her to my regular rotation....
I am in deep shabby chic mode! I hope this firing is all cream and tan and pink and the palest of blues... with maybe a touch of red!
