Making Friday: The Leaf Bowl

Another challenge for a bowl,
 no need for round or longish shapes
how about a leaf shape?
First roll out a ball of clay
with a rolling pin,
make it on the thinnish side
about 1/8",  then using a
dull knife cut out a leaf shape.
Then using your fingers create
undulating curves on the edge,
starting on one side and
continuing on the other side
until both sides have curves.
Leave the leaf to dry, there is
no need for support the
Laguna Dry Hard Clay
will hold its shape. Once
dry decorate with acrylic paints
 a caterpillar awaits at the bottom!
