Peg's hanging planter bowls



A new order for hanging planter bowls is the subject of this post. the bowl shape, and pattern that is impressed in the rim of the bowls is derived from an antique cream-white hanging planter bowl brought to me to make some replicas of. they did not have to match exactly in color or pattern, but I happened to have a leaf and flower stamp that simulated the pattern of the original. the color chosen is a new mustard yellow that is a satin matt glaze that is very nice to feel in your hand, plus it lends itself well to the "antique" like nature of this particular piece.
The photos with this post are of the pieces mentioned. these will probably lead to some new colors of this shape and pattern. sometimes customers can inspire an artist to try something that is out of the normal rhythm of their creative process. My thanks to "Peg" for a new direction in my patterning and glazing processes.
