June Kiln Carving Pattern

 

Kiln carving pattern Ivy

June’s free kiln carving pattern is a twisty ivy leaf.  This pattern is probably a bit more difficult than beginner level.  It has huge potential for green glass sun catchers, or dishes with ivy around the edge and on the bottom.  This pattern was inspired by the mass of ivy that I really need to remove from the wall in my garden.  It’s gorgeous, but kind of a pain.

1.  Cut a piece of fiber paper large enough to cover the whole design.  Tack the design on a cutting surface using tacks through the black dots:
