Kiln Goddess: Poppy

17.5 x 7cmBlue cobalt oxide on white stoneware. Clear glaze. Gold lustre overglaze

Poppy comes with the youngest of her litter: Otis, who is a bit of a handful it must be said but because he’s generally cute he gets away with a lot.
She literally has a heart of gold and is covered all over with Peony blooms. There’s a slight purple ‘flash’ on her flank from a gold lustre smear. I think of it as a birth mark
