B. and Nonie did a little ceramics decoration while we were up at the cabin. I will be very interested to see how Bee's plate turns out as she used a crystalline glaze and then overprinted a leaf onto the plate, adding the last coat of the base glaze with the crystals after the leaf was printed. It looks great, even unfired!
Sunday Bee showed me how to nature print using water soluble ink and found plant material. Most of it had been flattened overnight in a phone book, and we used mostly newsprint as this was a learning experiment for me. GREAT fun! Bee was getting great results with a piece of lavender and I especially liked a cedar frond and one of the little Japanese maple leaves that are so abundant at the end of the deck.
The weather was picture perfect while we were at the cabin. How will I convince B. that this is not normal Pacific NW weather?
