Kimono honey jar and Altoids tin

Here is a jar I covered with the last few slices from the end of my Japanese flower canes and a few slices of a transparent clay and metal leaf jellyroll cane (you can just see a slice of this one on the right side of the rim). I rather like this jar.

Here is an Altoids mints tin covered with the remains of the sheet used for the Kimono jar. There were a few breaks in the surface as the canes are pretty old and dry so I put a thin layer of Premo Frost on top before firing this filled in the gaps and gave a lovely surface to sand and polish. It feels really nice to the touch as the surface is so smooth and the colours and detail of the canes is only slightly dimmed by the extra layer..
