Nearly a fifth of the way through the year already!! Wow the time is going fast.
So this week we are back to the Moon Flasks :) You might recall my very first challenge piece at the start of the year was also a Moon Flask - Chinoiserie Dreaming. Here are the two flasks together. The circular part of each flask is exactly the same size, just two very different looks. It's quite an optical illusion isn't it? :)
For this Moon Flask I've incorporated the stand into the flask, and gone all fancy with the stopper!! :) (I blame Ann Davis for that - I could tell she thought my first stopper was a bit plain, even though she didn't say as much - lol!!)
This flask has a higher neck, and I went really OTT with the stopper! Here is it before firing - tiny!!
Making it was fun!!
The finished Mystical Moon Flask can be worn either way round as it is enamelled on both sides.
I'm very excited that I will be teaching this as a workshop both in the UK and in the USA this year.
In May I will be at La Ruche Davis, Washington DC, USA and I'll also be teaching a one day Chain Sampler workshop while I'm there. These little flasks make wonderful little perfume bottles, and we will even have a fun extra accessory on that workshop!! ;)
If you want to know what it is you'd better book and come along!! :D
