How Clay Can Speak For You...

A few weeks ago, I demonstrated how to transfer print a word collage 
copied in black and white on a color copier to the clay slab surface
then pressed the slab with a PMS tray form into a 4" piece of foam.

With the scraps of clay from making the tray, I formed a pillow rattle
which  had a transfer print of the cat, Babe the Biter, on one side
and a blank back where I used white underglaze dots, green underglaze 
and a black Mayco Designer Liner to draw the leaves.

The pillow rattle is glaze fired but still not complete until I adorn it
with a handle, beads and maybe a bell or two...
