worth keeping

These lids were made a couple of years ago and didn't fit properly.  Rather than discard them I have kept them as examples of the use of ceramic pencil and Chinese tissue print decoration.

I am now looking at them to decide on how to go about decorating one of my teapots...
so I'm quite happy that I kept them :^)

 I'm off to Mud Colony now to see what has been happening in your studio this week, or maybe I'll see you on Facebook :^)

Oh those are wonderful I was thinking you were going to say you made new bottoms for them and they fit.

Thanks Deborah :^)
Hi Linda, well that may have been on my mind when I first kept them but it didn't happen and I couldn't bring myself to throw them away and now I'm glad I kept them.

hi Ellen, Thanks, they are thrown TMK white porcelaineous stoneware with sprigs. The pink and yellow ones have coloured tissue print while the blue one is a free-hand drawing with ceramic pencil.
