A Woodland Cross

I made this cross as a birthday present for a friend.  It's about 6" tall and hangs on the wall.  There is a word stamped into each leaf and as you read clockwise from the top right it says "NEW LIFE IN GOD."  I was happy with the sculpting, and surprisingly happy with the way the glaze turned out.  The birds are dark blue and are too dark.  I glazed a bit of a lighter, brighter blue on the tops of their heads and backs and I should have used that color for the whole birds.

I'm in the process of making another one for my Etsy shop.
