Poppy Stems

poppy stems

These are the stems of the poppies I made for my number plaque tile mosiac project.  They aren’t very interesting, but they are necessary.  I made them by extruding clay through a clay gun using the triple-circle die.  I made more than I needed, because I’m not sure what shapes and sizes I’m going to need when it comes time to make the mosaic.  I had to throw some of them out because they wouldn’t lie flat in the kiln and I worried that the glaze would make them stick to the shelf.  That’s okay. I made extra.
