Spring Leaves into pottery
the Canadian Prairies first fruit, the humble rhubarb plant. In my yard there are six different plants, that from April to September will be harvested for both leaves and fruit. The leaves which are highly toxic, are just great for the starting place for handbuilt porcelain and stoneware pottery. The concrete rhubarb leaves are lovely, but I wanted something for year round indoors and for food of course. The red rhubarb leaves are some of my favourites to make as soap dishes, spoon rests, cheese plates and of course conversation pieces. Any other users that you "bleaders" can think of???
