At last I have managed to get back into my workshop and make something. Of course it had to be Japanese inspired! This is a tiny little dish measuring just 36mm across with a cherry blossom pattern on it. Sakura is the Japanese for cherry blossom.

I normally make jewellery all the time so it was a nice change to make this little trinket dish.

The only problem is this is cheating really. It is going to be enamelled but it is so long since I posted any new work that I decided to patinate it lightly to pick up the texture so I could show it to you now.

I shall pop it back into the kiln for a few minutes to clean it for enamelling and that will remove the patina at the same time.

I'll show you the finished piece soon I hope :)

  4. Thanks everyone. I still need to find time to get it enamelled but shall definitely be working on it soon. I want to take it to the Guild of Enamellers conference if I can finish it in time.
