Started adding the design to the pot today.
As there has to be a ritual involved in the design of the vessel, I have used the annual ritual of planting spring bulbs. The design round the base of the pot is of bulbs ready to plant, the next layer is a stylised leaf design and the third layer is flowers in bloom. I have to start carving out the negative spaces between the flowers next week and also add some design elements in between each of the leaves. I wish I had more time to spend on this instead of just 3 hours a week.
