How about taking something ubuiquitous and seeing it in a whole different way? That's what we did with chair caning. My friend Frank had a piece left from a project and he gifted it to me - and we use it to make the center texture for this sunflower. The every-day texture is given new life when light hits the chocolatey glazed surface, complemented by variegated blue and tan petals.
Blue Rutile is a tough glaze to work with; but when it works, it is utterly fantastic. One of the more "runny" glazes I work with (check out the Bubbles Hex Bird House!), you can never be sure how it will turn out. With experience, results have become more predictable - and beautiful.
