Textures in Crystal

Out of the kiln today were some test pieces. I'm sampling some textures for imagery based on Plasmodesmata and Azolla. There are textures both raised and carved. I do  love Gaffer Crystal, though I wish it weren't so heavy (suppose it wouldn't be crystal then would it!).

My tests have decided me on using as usual, mostly incised carving balanced with a small amount of low relief sculpture. Light catches the two styles in very different ways but I'd like a bit of variety when the sculpture is viewd from the back. All up, I'm happy with the tests.
