Playing with glaze

Autumn is defintely in the air here. Last week I played around with a few glaze combinations and this is what came out. I really like the rust undertones in these pieces with one of my favourtite blue green glazes. These feel very autumn, even winter to me.
But this is my favourite of all. I've used this pattern as a button time and again. I've never used it as a pendant. Who knows why? But I love the brown in this one. It reminds me of certain seed pods that go very deep brown in autumn. I have no idea if this one can be done in a similar way again. But I'm pretty sure I'll try.
I'm on a very tight schedule here. Three events in one week with only about 3 weeks to get ready for the first. So I'm a little tired tonight but I do see the light at the end of the tunnel.

GoRgEoUs LeAnn! Are you keeping all of your finished pieces together in one space as you work on more for your big events? I'm wondering if you could take a picture of everything to show us? :)

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! I'm a sucker for brown, and I love how you have paired it with a blue/green.

Remember to take time out to relax during your busy week!
