Cat Tongue Yucca Brush

Yesterday I glazed using a teensy tiny ‘cat tongue’ shaped brush that I made out of a small yucca frond (I soaked the frond in water for a few days, then scraped off the pulp with knife ). This was an experiment that I wanted to try since reading a book called, “Talking With The Clay”, The Art of Pueblo Pottery by Stephen Trimble. I felt like jumping up and down, “It Works It Works”. I didn’t want to chew on the yucca as suggested in the book but I googled “making a brush out of yucca plant” and found the suggestion on soaking it instead of chewing it. (ick)

After some are fired, I’ll post a photo here. I’ll have to take a better photo of this brush, too.
