A couple of things happening in the studio today – I have been making some plates using pumpkin leaves from the garden, and it was the end of National Poetry Writing month yesterday, so today is the first day I have not had to incorporate writing a poem and creating a drawing into my daily studio practice for a month – so this is something NOT happening in the studio today. You can check out my POETRY blog here for my efforts of the past month :-).
It has been a bountiful vegetable and fruit garden this summer/autumn season which I have shared previously HERE.
Currently the pumpkin vines are dying off, which means harvesting pumpkins, and also using these huge gorgeous leaves to create some ceramic plates. I made some using the entire leaf and pumpkin shapes, and others in a more traditional, though organic, shape using a partial imprint of the leaf. I also made some pendants and beads. Hopeully all of these effort will be available in my ETSY shop once I have glazed and fired them 🙂
Have a great week.
looks like a bumper crop – the leaves look great. Don’t think I’ve seen pumpkin leaves used like that before…
Well, lace imprinting is all the rage now, so I thought I would go with something different!!
