Got lucky this week I was able to make a stem before i made the bloom. This one took a couple of days to prep the bloom I had to wait for the parts to glue and set before i could add more. Then more glue to hold and wait to be able to put into the kiln. That is one of the most intense parts of the process. My kiln top loads and just barely fits my molds for the flowers, but this time luck and gravity were on my side. A simple stem and vase for the accent of a dramatic bloom. Thanks for looking.
