The Color of Gray

There are so many great colors in the spectrum.  Bright ones, dark ones, cool ones, warm ones - sometimes its hard to choose which is best.  I am a big fan of gray - sounds boring, right?  There are so many shades of gray.

Here are some great examples of gray:

Just a Little Texture

I have refined my pottery forms and have been gradually taking a form that works very well and adding another dimension with texture.  I turned my spoonrests into something extra interesting by changing up the texture.

Textured Spoon Rest

My unity candles are simple and elegant, but I have been toying with the idea of adding in some texture.  I had purchased a flower form a while back and added on some texture as I was finishing a pillar candle holder.

Texture Form

What do you think? I will need to go back in and refine it. Do you think it takes away from the form or enhances it?  Imagine it on a finished piece.
