Peonies and Dancers

Lustre glaze ceramic bowl by Margery Clinton  (1931-2005)

Margery became a specialist in lustre glazes as a result of research done at the Royal College of Art in the 1970s.  An inventory of her recipes and research is now held in the National Library of Scotland .....

Looking at these fading peony petals I see dance costumes  .....

Dancers by Edgar Degas (1834-1917)  .....
