Large Maple Leaf Bowl

Yesterday one of the pieces I made was this large leaf bowl using maple leaves as a resist. My idea was to show the maple leaves as they might look in the night sky. As I peeled back the leaves I thought about using a transparent colored glaze (such as a green celadon). 

This bowl is about 4 h x 12 w inches. I could use a clear glaze but I wonder if I used a green translucent how it would turn out? What do you think? Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
