Ginko Leaf

My beautiful helper models my Ginko Set.
I my back yard there is ginko tree. It is fully green now and glistens in the all to persistent rain. In the autumn the leaves will turn a glorious yellow and in one day they will rain down with a persistence unequaled buy other trees. It is no wonder that I am inspired to use the ginko leaf motif in some of my jewelry. 

The Ginko leaf pattern in this set starts with my Dragon Parts stamp. When I design my stamps I think about what the parts will look like in isolation. By choosing carefully the person using the stamp can get dozens of designs from one large stamp. I like incorporating the bits into one picture so that the user of  the stamp is given the creative choice of where a design begins and ends.

14 - Pot Blue and White - Gone to Pot

14 - Pot Blue and White Again
Some my intention was to post a pot a week but in reality I find that I bare that enough time to get half of my production done. It is not the things are flying of the shelf just that there is always that thing that you don't have that a customer asks for. Like the red Queen on Alice in Wonderland, I am always running to stay in the same place. So pots will happen when they happen and I will keep count, and who knows by December 31 I might just have a couple more completed.
