Pumpkins and Trifle

After working with the chintz patterns I'm starting to see them everywhere, even my little mini pumpkins look like they might work well incorporated in some plate decoration. When I was photographing these I pinched a few leaves from the egg plant to roll onto some slabs, nothing new about this idea but I thought they might make nice little sushi plates, I'll use them to test some new coloured transparent glazes on them too.
I bought some glass dishes in an op shop last week to make some slump moulds from but then realised that I could use the cut surfaces to make plaster stamps. I think I'll use them on the sides of some thrown bowls this week, I'd better get on with those glaze test then...and maybe make a trifle?
