First Crack at Plate Design

Levi has to take off to college before getting to carve some of his beautiful trees on the plates for the winners of the Uwharrie Mountain Run, so at the end of the day - after glazing a hundred or so cups - I decorated one of the plates. Following are three pictures which shows me carving, and then the finished plate.
