Welcome the fall with these melodic lovelies…

Welcome the fall with these melodic lovelies… Gather leaves, roll out a thin slab, places the leaves on it, then, using a rolling pin, press the leaves down into the clay. Make sure you get the outline and veins. Cut out, make a hole in each, then dry flat (between plaster board). Decorate as you’d like after they’re bisqued, but remember glaze will make the leaves heavier. How about stains or thin washes of underglaze? Find nice sticks for a cross piece, get some heavy gauge fishing line or twine and there you have it! A big thank you to windandweather for the idea… Your wind chimes are magical…
