I made 10 of these last fall, still have a few left. I had bought the wooden trays for almost nothing at a thrift shop, and thought they would be perfect for adding tiles....trying different textures.

A long time customer ordered this; it's about 9" in diameter

These are bowls I made for the local "Empty bowls project", plus some experimental eggs.

I made these nests in March, to be used as candy dishes at our granddaughter's wedding reception. The decorations were bird-themed: mini birdhouses on the tables, etc. These nests are about 8" in diameter. I bisque-fired a lot of little sticks first, then shaped the nests of stoneware clay, and after they were partly firm, poked the "twigs" into the clay. The colors are not all glaze; I had to enhance with acrylics.
