I love those gorgeous plates in Anthropologie with the animals and flowers on them. I have quite a collection as I buy one every time I visit thier London store. I thought it would be fun to make my own large decorative "nature table" themed bowl for my dining table to match the plates.
I can't make one out of clay as I don't have a kiln. However, after the success of using paper mache to make my Marimekko Planters I decided to use the same method as the base for these bowls.
