Getting Botanical...

Our front garden is abuzz with new growth.  The flowers are  blooming, the butterflies are coming to visit, and all the greenery has me inspired.

I love pinnate leaves, the feathery appearance immediately attracts me!

I have imprinted some lavender leaves from our garden into some pmc3...  I have them refined and ready to put in the kiln.  

This is my first time trying something organic as a pattern.  And, I am in love.  Once these have been properly sintered, they will for all intents and purposes be preserved forever.  

Isn't that amazing?  Each leaf, each pinnae, like a human fingerprint...while all similar not ever completely the same...

I've already been out nosing around the garden this morning searching for more inspiration.

I did have plans to go to the gym this morning, but those plans have been thwarted by a sick little one.  

I've given her Tylenol and tucked her into bed and she is now sleeping soundly...poor baby.

Have a great day all!  I can't wait to continue my botanical experiments!


  1. What a cool project! I'm sure they will turn out amazing!

  2. Can't wait to see the finished project :) I hope your little one gets over it quickly!

  3. Watching and waiting. Love the pinnate leaves. Hope your lil one is well soon. D

  4. Love those leaves - can't wait to see them finished. Well wishes to your little one.
