To make this I went to a paint-your-own-pottery place for the first time since I was a kid. It was a lot of work but I had so much fun doing this! There is something so gratifying about painting all these layers of glaze and not knowing quite what it will look like, then having it fired and seeing everything in its smooth, fully-saturated glory. I fully intend to go back and paint some more pottery. Someone should commission me to paint a commemorative plate!
