Ok the bowls are out of the kiln and for a first time I think "not to bad". I was really excited to open the kiln and see how this new technique would turn out.

I used a matte blue green glaze (I love this color) then placed round flat back colored glass pebbles (bought at Michaels Arts & Crafts). (Have I ever mentioned that my "real" job is working for Michaels? Well I do. Anyway. I placed the glass around the rim. On the bottom I arranged some glass pebbles to look like a flower. And this was the result.

I also had a couple of mini bowls that I decided to add glass pebbles to the bottom of. These I really liked. There is a lot to be said for simplicity.

Well there they are. My first attempt. Not sure what I was so nervous about. I will keep on practicing this technique. The possibilities are endless.
