Ghost Forest

So my first batch of tree stump porcelain candle sticks are glazed and fired. I chose a warm white glaze that when fired produced this nice matte finish mottled with patches of pearl-gray. I also made a few that would make a nice flower bud vase (or pencil holder) and a few shot glasses. And like most of my sculpted works these are very animated. I have another batch with darker glazes I will be posting photos of soon.

They came out looking vaguely like the driftwood tree stumps you see washed up on beaches in the Sea Islands
