Ceramics - Part 2

I have been enjoying my ceramics sessions.  Every member of the group has been requested to make a piece for the show and sale that will be held next month.  My choice is the bowl above, which is probably about 10 inches across.  The glaze I painted it with has little chunks of different colors which, when fired, make spots of different colors, creating this spotted look.  Unfortunately, this was taken by my cell phone, and doesn't show the true colors of the spots, which were bright green.
Lizzie is about 8 inches long and hangs around my campsite.  He was fun to do, but didn't turn out exactly like I wanted him to.  However, I keep hearing other members of the group saying that things don't usually turn out like you expect them to.  Still - he's cute.

This is my dragonfly - my favorite color.  He's now hanging around inside my 5th wheel.  I did two of these, but one is for the show/sale.  The photo of both of them is not as good, but is shown below.  These things are so shiny and reflective that it's hard to photograph.

Now I'm on to other projects, having fun along the way!
