Here are the ceramic flowers I made from this latest firing. I like the one with the yellow center and blue exterior. It takes a bit of doing to make the stamen and to glaze them a contrasting color but the effect is well worth it. The largest flower is about six inches across and five inches tall with the thick stem. I broke the petal on one of the large flowers and glazed it anyway, now I think it isn't worth the trouble of gluing it back together again.
I plan to glue a long wood or wire stem into a hole I have made in the bottom so these can be displayed in the garden, or in a houseplant for color. or they could be placed in a vase as an everlasting flowers. I hope to make refinements to the construction and make more of these. I am also planning to make some mushrooms or toadstools. I leave you with a peony from my garden. Happy Mother's Day to you all. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
