1. My tray is a variety tray, which means you can use it for what ever you want. Chips and dip, candy, jewelry, coin bowl, maybe even a candle holder. It makes it used for that because there is two parts to it, there's the bowl in the middle and then the tray part.
2. I just thought it would be cool to have a snowflake shaped bowl and i wanted to make one with the bowl in the middle because it is always useful and can be used for anything.
3. I first found the snowflake bowl, then got some clay and rolled it flat. Then i made the small bowl with clay and a cylinder. Next i waited a few days for them to dry then score and slipped them together. After that i fired them in the kilm and waited for it the be done. Next i got the paints i wanted to use and painted it then fired it. Last painted the snowflakes with acrylic and fired it, that was it.
