  1. Wow! That’s exquisite!


  2. Such a beautiful specimen. Excellent photo!


  3. Beautiful photography of such elegant xls. I have a friend who creates a similiar crystalline structure with his Raku glazes. The texture is so clear I want to reach out and run my finger across your photos! Best wishes, wG


  4. Those rosettes are truly impressive. Great photo! 🙂


  5. UNFAIR ! UNFAIR ! Maggie has far too many things she can photograph for this challenge !!
    WoooooooouuuaaaaaaaaAAAAAAAAAAA !!


  6. Beautiful 😀


  7. Ok this is getting to be a bit of a theme ’cause all you pics remind me of things that they are obviously not – these look like the squashed bristles of a toilet brush, you know if you squashed the head flat. It is a great photo and I really hope it doesn’t offend but my brain is a little odd (even to me) at times.


  8. Not at all! As a matter of fact, I appreciate that your see and say these things! I’ve often threatened to conduct a series of Rorschach type tests with minerals. [with mid-European accent] Now zen, how lonk have you had zeez feelinks towards your muzzer, ya?” How’s that for odd brains? 😉 Not to mention, how is that for offensive? hoo boy


  9. Love them – the first one is exquisite!


  10. Really exquisite and so unusual, I’ve never seen anything like this! Greetings from Egypt!
