Dandelions are fast becoming my new favourite thing, I even picked some from one of the fields last weekend and have put them in a vase on the kitchen window sill (pictured above on the garden table). I was quite pleased with the photo I took of one of the dandelion floret seeds with my new camera…
Following on from my dandelion inspiration post from last week, I’m excited to be sharing these new *limited edition* dandelion bowls with you, brand new to my range!
I really enjoyed drawing free-hand onto the surface of the clay, a bit like the design technique used for my bonsai bowls. I used a volcanic textured glaze which has worked well to show the impression of the floret seeds being blown in the breeze.
The overall look and ‘feel’ to these bowls is very rustic, with the natural element making them fit in with almost any home decor. I intend to develop these dandelion designs further, onto other items such as vases and coasters, and would like to try using a different lighter coloured clay body so that the designs could look more elegant and bold.
