I think this is a Great Crested Flycatcher. I took the photo through my window so it isn't the clearest, but he was so sweet sitting in the tree I just had to show you. There was actually a pair of them in the tree but I could only get one in the photo.
Here's the leaves from this firing. Pairs of each with the same glaze.
Except for the red ones I have four of them. The red ones are actually shiny but my photo cube is in the garage and the lighting there is different than in the house I guess.
These leaves can be used as a spoon rest, as candle holder, or for soap, even a bread and butter plate. Or they're just pretty to look at. They curve up just slightly on the edges.
It's hard to see in the photos, but in person the veins show up nicely with these glazes.
These were supposed to be more blue and shiny and they are a blue green and very matt. I'm still amazed at how an oxidation firing can be different each time even with the same glaze and firing schedule.
This is the second set of the red ones. Coming up soon a woven sculpture so please check back. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
