This project had a lot of elements that I was brand new to. I threw a bottle on the wheel and hit it with a wooden paddle to get the bottle shape. I used a laser to melt glaze to form the image. Then I splattered more glaze on top to give it more detail. Even though the bottle is small it has a surprising weight to it.
