Woodland Blobs

It was my intention to make a bunch of things inspired by the Haeckel images in yesterday's post, but time got away from me.  I did manage to make a bunch of restock items, which was probably a better use of my time anyway.  But I did make three little beads this morning, shown above.  I think they have some of those mossy, fungus type textures.  With the right glazes, they can look very "woodland" like.  These reminded me of the garden teapots and beads that I used to make long ago. Maybe these three little prototypes will inspire more.  They remind me of this video by Deathcab, which has a nice woodland theme too
