SNOW Plaquettes

The impending 'blizzard' of 2015 closed down most of southern New Jersey and cancelled my hand building classes giving me the opportunity to stay at home in my studio and form some new, spontaneous plaquettes, pendants and earring beads.  I am up to applying terra sigillata and underglazes after smoothing all the rough edges with fine steel wool. I think I will do glaze accents on one side of most of these so deciding where to put what colors now and making notes of the glazes I want to apply after their first firing is a bit of a task...

These were all impressed from my Intaglio mats (both sides) with the exception of a few like the lion and Sphinx heads which were made from my own molds.
