Dinning With The Birds

These plates, bowls and cups came out of the kiln and I just couldn't resist seeing how they would look as a place setting.  So I took them out to the deck and set up the table.  It just seemed right to have bird plates while dinning outside.  The set is for sale so I didn't really use them, just set them up and took a couple of pictures in the late afternoon sun.  I got to play with them a little before packing them up for this Fired Works.

I'm really happy with the way they came out.  Each piece has a bird image inlaid into it using the Mishima technique.  The lines came out really sharp, even the fine detail.  I can see the attraction to this style.

I've started doing this on different pieces.  I'm inlaying flowers, horses and birds as you can see.  I'm not sure where this will go but I really do like the way it looks on these pieces with the ash glaze.  I also like that it incorporates drawing into my pottery which is fun.  It's time consuming because each image needs to be drawn twice but I think the results are worth it.
