Months ago I fired the napkin rings and they've been sitting on the fired work table in the garage. For some reason I thought of them today. I got out some cloth napkins from my hutch and found out the napkin ring diameters aren't quite large enough. To be fair these napkins are very thick and large. Still the napkin rings could be a larger diameter. I can slip a single layer of cloth into the ring but not a double layer.
Trying out the napkin rings made me think of other napkin ring shapes like leaves or branches. I thought of using different clays like speckled and terra cotta. I thought of woven or fiber napkin rings with ceramic beads. Then I thought of colorful or organic napkins displayed on plates. I thought of a whole table displayed with handmade pottery. Can you imagine it? Plates, bowls, napkin rings, cups, mugs, candle holders. Wouldn't that be a wonderful display in a gallery or in an art fair booth? So many ideas so little time.
