Default Mud and first sculptures

Crow is still clay..mud..leather hard, drying slowly. I had to make him in 4 pieces and assemble while all about the same amount of wet. I don't have a stand to work on so i hoped and prayed that all held and so far it has. Been drying for 2 weeks. HE is hollow, all parts, but you want it to dry slowly so it doesn't crack.

Vic sculpts..are all trials, experiments. Now i gotta figure out how to do the whole dog. I rubbed them with red iron oxide and then wiped as much as possible off before i put them in for the glaze firing. I didn't coat with clear, just the iron that will turn into a dark color in all the creases to bring out the detail. The second firing will turn the pink tiles white. I was too chicken to put on a clear coat on top of that. I worked too hard to get the detail in to chance it being glopped up.

Go Petie Go Go Who Go!
