THe firing was not kind to yours Grammy. THat is why i coated it with bronze and gave it a and aged look. IF they wanted to highlight some areas they sell stuff that you can do it with. Makes it look like hand rubbed bronze. I figured i would have to do the same thing to Big Butch and was trying to figure out how i would ever get it all inside of his mouth but i dind't have to. THe kiln Gods kissed his big ol mug. I was soooooo pleased. IT is a high to pull something like that out of the kiln. A really good feeling.

When Butch is looking inquisitive he brings his ears forward and the wrinkles abound. I tried very hard to capture that. WHen he puts his ears back the wringles are flat as in the photo above.

The important part is that it is life size...almost not far off at all. Little butch was a far better sculpture and i am glad i did both. One that would fit in your palm and the reverse, back to back. Working from life is sooooooooooo much better than photos. Little butch i just stood over him looked down and voila.
