I have been traveling a lot this past month, driving around the eastern US, from Pennsylvania to West Virginia, Tennessee, Michigan. While driving long distances is definitely not one of my favorite pastimes, it has given me an opportunity to observe the gorgeously vibrant colors of the changing leaves. It really is a lovely time for a road trip, and the varying hues of the forest-clad hills have inspired me (see some of my inspirations here)!
I wanted to bring a bit of the Autumn to my ceramics, and so I decided to create some fall leaf ornaments. The project is fairly straight-forward and I have detailed the process in my A Project for Autumn: Leaf Ornaments post. Each ornament is a tad different, a slightly different shape or color, and so opening up the kiln after a glaze firing is a bit like stepping onto a forest path strewn with fallen leaves.
