Aromatherapy Pods with Daubers

For some reason, I can never make enough of my petite clay CUTEsie which end up becoming vases, aromatherapy pods or personal pitchers.  Just when I thought I had done all I could with my round start up forms, Maryanne Lockhard gave me a set of oval ones...

The taller oval aromatherapy pod with dauber is only 7" high while the Gillette leaf wrapped pod and dauber stands a total of 5" tall.  They are both glazed in and out with raw clay dauber ends which will be the carriers of  the aromatherapy oils within.


At a student's request, we made trays inspired by a post on Ceramic Arts Daily a few weeks back.  I made several templates of various sizes and this happens to be one of the smaller ones (5 1/2" x 3") -

The pattern on this tray came from my Greek Keo INTAGLIO impressing mat and the 266 chocolate stoneware tray was glazed with the Opulence glaze, Meadow, which was applied and lifted before firing in a 5/6 kiln.  The exterior was treated with terra sigllata on greenware and simply coated with Renaissnce Wax after the firing.
