We had lovely stand of elephant ear plants at our home while living in
NC. They provided gorgeous texture, esp. the heavily veined underside of
leaves. Eventually I made dual purpose plaster molds using the smooth
undersurface of mold for wedging and the top side for textures. One
Leaf imprint could give me a mold maybe 18" long and almost as wide. I
would roll out slabs wherever I found sections I wanted to use for a
particular piece. The finished slabs would yield essentially one of a
kind designs. Alas, I had to leave the molds and the elephant ear plants
behind when I moved to PA 3 years ago but am never at a loss for new
ideas for my pottery even though age is catching up on me.
