Fall Filigree - How I Made It

I was digging through some old folders of pictures on my computer today and I came across the photos below.  I don't think I ever wanted to make a tutorial of them - just wanted to show some of the progression of the project.  I thought my readers might like to see them so here they are:

First I drew a pattern.

Then I extruded a bunch of strings of clay.

I made a colored version of my pattern and impressed onto a sheet of black clay.

Then I started adding strings of clay to my background.

After the strings were all done, I cut it out and baked it.

Then I pressed it into a new black background that I had rolled out and textured.
So there it is.  Just looking at these photos is making me want to do another one.  That may have to be my next project...
