All the way to Norfolk, England - which has no mountains whatsoever - of any colour!
Obviously this is a pattern meant for quilts, but ... you know me! I loved the little houses round the edges, and got to work measuring out my own version onto a slab of wet clay.
Once the design is marked out, I flip the whole thing over (tricky!) to put my potter's mark and stamp and date on the underside of the piece. My potter's mark is a 'C' and a 'D' overlapping and was one of the first homemade stamps I ever made.
Then I pushed the piece into a lined mould and worked on the edges.
Then, once the clay is bone dry, it goes into a bisque firing kiln - you can just see it underneath all the other bits sitting on top of it.
Twenty four hours later - out it comes, ready to glaze.
Once glazed, below, it is ready to go back for a second firing. The raw glaze colours do not reflect the finished colours - thankfully!
And then another 24 hours, until it's completely cooked, and out comes the final piece.
I am really pleased with it. I decided to make the pointy bits look like a sunburst, as I think it's a lovely, sunny, cheery design.
Thanks to Rachaledaisy and to the inspiration to be found in all corners of Blogland!
