Colorful Kitties Feline Votive

This votive is made with a repurposed pickle jar. I etched the inside, not sure what design I’d use on the outside, but certain I’d add color and pattern to all the workings in the glass. At first I thought it would be flowers, but then I remembered this colorful design that I’d been intending […]

Some variations on a theme, 6″ plates and 4″ coasters with the image stamped into the surface then painted and glazed in various ways, using “Bath” and “Three Cats Looking”.
