Default Mud and bisque..my 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.

thanks guys.. here is a close up of my favorite..http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e3...relenlarge.jpg
since i know basically nothing about what i am doing i am grateful that all held together. They are hollow too. I just took a slab of clay and minupulated it until it was the right shape then i added little pieces around the eyes and such until it looked right and smoothed it down. then thanks to a tip from a teacher about how to let them dry slow and evenly, they turned out ok. If the teacher hadn't given me the tip, which he dind't have to do because i am not a student, they would have curled and been ruined.

shoot the pic distorted the teeth., they look right on the real thing and i made sure the roof of the mouth had the right amount of ridges. Took about 4 hours each.
