Jack O'lantern kiln carving pattern

As I know you have all been waiting so terribly patiently, here is the kiln carving pattern for September 2013.  This is a versatile pattern with four different pumpkin/Jack O’lantern designs.  You could use them in a square like I did, or put one each under four different projects.  Bottle bottoms are the perfect size and you could make four different suncatchers with the same pattern.

Kiln Carving Pattern

January’s kiln carving pattern is brought to us by happy thoughts of spring and a new year.  This pattern was inspired by some lovely wrought iron railing here in Salt Lake City that I ran across recently.  It much simplified, of course, but I do love the way it turned out.
