This is the slip version of the original majolica dragonfly bowls. These are now drying out and I just hope the colours work out ok. I used a few layers of slip washes with some sponged blobs and finally trailed a line of black slip to define the drawing. I think I quite like the tail going over the rim.
Funny things dragonflies, this evening on a wildlife programme I have just seen a vicious larvae grab a fish with its mandibles. Later it turned into the gossamer winged innocent from my bowls but it vaguely of put me off eating out of them.
