Snowflake glazed flowers to shrines

Started making shrines about the same time I was testing John Britt's snowflake crackle glazes.  So it was inevitible that they would come together.

The orange tint  and yellow pollen come from Mayco stroke and coat glaze, as well as the shiney brown and black parts of the shrine.  The matt brown base is just red iron oxide wash.

Base glazed with matt bronze green and Mayco stroke and coat, with some of the snowflake glaze coming down onto it.

Why the base leaves for the flowers, you may ask?  Well, I wanted to dip the flowers, and then have them sit on something appropriate, thus the bases, which were not attached until the glaze firing, including on the shrine flower.

More shrines tomorrow!


Looking forward to hearing from you! Since I didn't know the 1000+ people who supposedly looked at my blog the other day, I'm back to moderating comments. If that doesn't help, I don't know why blogger doesn't have a filter that stops this hacking...
