I always think of them as citronella oil lamps.
We have a lot of mosquitoes here.
Any oil would work and a few drops of essential oil
will customise the smell.
I had to try a lady bug,
they seem to like flowers more than vegetables
I have seen more of them since I put more flowers in the circles.
I have some work to do on the design it's looking a bit like the dreaded
pumpkin beetle, that orange rogue that eats every thing.
I have a new camel design also
I have just noticed I can see my reflection in the glaze.
It's very shiny.
This one is much is much more fiddly to make, 2 bowls put together then cut in half,
Bottoms on, saddles on, blanket wick holder,
oh and don't forget the head/neck.
I enjoyed finding this site http://mudcolony.blogspot.com.au/
There was an encouragement to join in so I just had to, jump on the link
and have a look to see what some other potters are doing.
I am pleased to see there are other potters out there doing their own thing.
I couldn't resist this cute leek flower with it's little hat still on.
I hadn't noticed the bee until I uploaded the photos onto the computer.
A friend has just realised her dream of being an apiarist with a box of bees in our forest.
More on that later.
