The Ants Come Marching
Visit Etsy Store:
http://0.etsy.comI created a series of small trays after playing with my tile moulds and stamps - they remind me of flying carpets. Use these trays to hold snacks or appetizers....anything you'd like to display on a fancy flying carpet! This small tray started it's life as a thin slab of porcelain clay, which I impressed with some of my handmade stamps - dogwood flowers in the center with a line of fun little ants, and finished on the edges with a triangular stamp. I then laid it over a slump mould I made, and added 2 small stamped coils of clay feet to the bottom. It measures about 5" wide X 8" long, and about 1 3/4" high. I've glazed the flowers in peach satin matte, the ants in a mottled gloss transparent blue/green and the triangles in gloss black, The tray is nicely off-center and very light. The glazes are mid-range stoneware and non-lead.
