I decided to try something a little different with my pottery. I painted these plates thinking of the woodcut yarn ball on the cover of Mason-Dixon Knitting. I'm going to keep working on this design - thin the cobalt a little, take more care when painting. For the cups, I'm going to cut the yarn design into the bottoms. My goal now is to make a tea pot resembling an old stove-top "fat keeper" I saw in a book at the library. It was all slap dash and wire - with an orphaned tin cap for a lid.
