Herb Drying - my first try

Going home to roost has become a frequent stop-over for me - all because of this post. A simple but beautiful herb dryer caught my eye and I was hooked. So much so that I've made one for myself. I made it out of earthenware clay and the pattern is a roll-stamp I carved 2 years ago.

Herb dryer with thyme, rosemary, curry bush & bay leaves; inspired by this post.

 I didn't have anything else but her picture to go on so I kinda thumb sucked - not that it's rocket science but then again that's what makes it.

This is such a simple idea, unfortunately I could find no further link or reference to it anywhere else.
I have to say I thoroughly enjoy the various sections to her blog.
