Saturday we went down to visit my Dad. I gave him a quilt for his birthday. He had some bags of stuff he was getting rid of. I had put them in the car. Mostly textiles, sheets, old pillow covers,etc. When we got home I set one of the bags down on the table and it clunked. I found this leaf bowl in the bottom of the bag. I had made it when I was a child, probably about 2nd or 3rd grade. I can remember making this. We had a flattened piece of clay and took a large leaf and pressed it into the clay. Then trimmed around the leaf. Then we wadded up dampened paper towels to curve the the shape until it dried. I don't remember doing the glazing and the firing. I remember that my brother had also made one, his was green. What a treasure to find in the bag!
