I am always surprised, delighted or annoyed at how much translucent colour change when they are cooked. I try to always cook a sample before I commit to a project. Here is a sample sitting on top of the raw clay from which it was made. Not only do the colours become brighter but what ever you place behind the cane slices changes the look of the veneer. I would like to spend a few days playing with this. - Something to look forward to in the new year. Now back to work.
