'Zebra' pots and some 'winter' flowers

Here is the blended clay trimmed to bring the different colors out and waiting to dry. The lines can range from fine to wider - it depends on how often I wedged the clays together and also on the throwing. If I pull the clay up and push it down several times it gets more mixed together.

Then again, there is also an element of chance which is fun!
These are little candle 'caves' for votives.

The only 'flowers' blooming in front of the studio right now ...

'Zebra eggs' in January

If there were such a thing as a brown zebra and if zebras laid eggs, this is what they might look like. I'm mixing clays again for some candleholders.

Red and white and a thin blue line.

Here they are freshly thrown, messy and the lines are obscured. Trimming tomorrow will bring them out more clearly.
