Genies/Spirit bottles



























































I haven't decided what to call these yet,whether they are genies trapped in bottles, nymphs or little spirits.Anyway, I like their bemused faces, and they are glazed inside so they can hold water and maybe a single stemmed (tiny)flower. Approx 10 cm tall. COMINGSOON!!
Spirit bottles printed with vintage letter blocks punctuated with a tiny red heart...Love Letters!

I may also start sending these out with a little message-a scroll of paper poked in the neck with a wish printed on.

Rosy glow

Here are some more recent angels with red velvet underglaze and a pink slip that I made from mixing the underglaze with white decorating slip. I normally add a touch of gold lustre to the halo-must have run out of time with these...!
