From the album: Ceramic BoxesThis was an experiment to see if I could fire a diamond shaped box with the glaze going around all sides. I did it! The stand is separate from the box but the way I designed the triangle base makes the box fit really snuggle into it. This is also the first time I used a mason stain wash instead of underglaze for the gold background on the box. The modern flowers are an underglaze transfer. The base is a simple RIO wash.
