I picked up my remaining ceramics from this past session this evening. It's too late to take photos and post them tonight, but I wanted to post one. This was the large banana leaf platter I started during the summer, made from a real banana leaf (see also posts about how they were mysteriously cut down, but managed to regrow).
It's a big platter, some 21" long and 10" wide. I'm very pleased with the result :
this post). For the large one, I used Oatmeal and Tam's Green and Matt Green. I was more careful to use long strokes, so it doesn't have the choppy look which the smaller one has. Both of them worked out quite well, I think, and are quite functional. I have been using the smaller one to hold bunches of bananas (since it's a banana leaf - get it?) on the kitchen counter.
The remainder of the pieces had some good and bad surprises, as always with glazing. Stay tuned for more photos soon.
