Overlapping Layers

 Tree Luminary
14 1/2 x 7 3/4 inches

Can't wait to purchase a candle to put inside this one and turn off the lights. The plates were fired separately from the two trees.

 Tone on Tone Tree
12 x 8 inches

The feather doesn't really go in the top. I wanted to show you there's an opening at the top to insert something, just not sure what yet. Any ideas?

Maybe nothing in the top. Not sure why the tree looks pink in this photo.

 Sunset Rose Basket
8 3/4 h x 11 1/4 w x 6 1/4 w inches

I'm really liking all the overlapping layers on my new work.

Aqua and Brown Basket
4 3/4 h x 16 3/4 w x 6 1/4 w  inches

This could also be a casserole but basket occurred to me today. There's a few more pieces but I've got to pack up for Christmas in the Hills, more later. There's also lots of 'next times' I'll discuss in the next post. Meanwhile I'm thankful for my new work. White rabbit to you. This post is part of Artists in Blogland Show and Tell Saturday. Thanks for reading and for all your encouragement and comments.


  1. And White Rabbit to you. I like it all; many customers to you at Christmas in the Hills.

  2. Love everything! Linda, have you thought about putting little holes around the base of the tree? Not a lot but enough for effect. You know those little candles popular at Ikea? Think one of those little candles at the top would balance little ones at the base. I can see all of this in my mind but can't do a bit of it so I'm not the best person to know what really works.

    And thank you, sweet lady, for offering to help with Rings. Really appreciate it! Rachel's working her magic with Rings and I should have a link soonest.

    BTW, remember those photos you sent? Well, I weakened and gave two to my girlfriend to have framed for her daughter's starter home in Arizona. Stephanie was beyond excited. Girl, you made everybody's day. Bless you!

  3. I can't wait till you try the candles under the tree with the star holes. I bet it will be magical! Good luck on your sales today.

  4. I like how the overlapping works with the glazes. Especially like the sunset one. Is that a commercial glaze? Good luck today!

  5. The hole in the top? A small star perhaps?
    I am loving your overlapping series, and can see a place for them in so many homes - traditional, cluttered (like ours) or minimalistic.

  6. Hi Joanne, thanks so much, had a good sale yesterday.

    Hi Kittie, thanks, those photos are perfect for an Arizona home, how generous of you and nice to know my photos are appreciated in many places. Not sure what you mean about the holes at the bottom, you mean have candles around the outside and on the inside? good idea.

    Hi Barbara, thanks, I just remembered I do have some tea lights I'll have to get them out.

    Hi Gayle, thanks, I am liking the overlapping too, I'll send you an email.

    Hi Ms. Sparrow, thanks so much.

    Hi Elephant's Child, thanks I may just leave it plain, glad you can see them in different decors, hopefully other's will too, Ha.

  7. The first on is perfect now for christmas.


  8. Hey Linda, How are you? So much goodness here. I love these trees and the new tower series just wonderful,

  9. love the layers...and the colors!

  10. i bet the tree is pretty with a candle in it! Love your other pieces too!

  11. Hi Elna, thanks, normally I am bah humbug but this technique I am using lent itself to a tree. Ha.

    Hi Denise, thanks, doing well, these are real pep me up pieces with all the colors.

    Hi Molly, thanks, if only I could whip them up quicker I'd have more colors.

    Hi Debbie, thanks, still haven't gotten around to putting a candle inside, one of these days. Ha.

  12. I love that basket. It's a good name too. The overlapping looks really good. Tree shaped candle stars are lovely too. All the best for Christmas!

  13. Hi Christine, thanks ever so much, have a wonderful holiday season.
