The yellow bird thing is a wall piece made with a darker clay than I usually use. I normally only use this clay for pieces like this that have a large unglazed area. It is so much richer looking than my regular clay. It would interfere with the look of most of my glazes though, which is why I don't use it much.
This is a close-up of the texture on the wall sconce. The pattern is from scrapbook paper I pressed on the clay. It is highlighted with a black engobe- turns dark blue under this gray-white glaze.
On the fern piece, I like the dimension in this glaze a lot. It can be a bit tricky to apply, so not as useful as some others. I will give this wall piece a copper wire for hanging
