If you haven't noticed, I love plays on words and phrases. Even though many times they are cliches, they have become a part of our tradition and I respect that.
Without a doubt, this is an autumn mask. Instead of going to a ball, this leaf is headed for a fall (in disguise). I had a great time working on this and trying out some new combinations. It is very satisfying mixing up my own glazes and trying for different effects. I hope that it keeps my work from becoming boring, for me or for the viewer.
The final firing was raku - the branch is from a tree in my yard.
