Two more!

This piece looks similar to one I did before.....but it blew up, so I thought I'd try it again. I am playing with both ends, making the pieces more sculptural. They are also much more fragile....I must like playing with fire! Fragile and Raku hardly go together....but I'll sure try!

Hermit Crab in his shell. Now all I have to do is wait patiently as they dry...for a few weeks before firing them in the bisque kiln.
Talk about patience...I am trying to get a hold of Randy Brodnax. I want him to build me a kiln for my backyard firings and haven't been able to get in touch with him yet.

Finally got some time in my studio!

I really thought I would be spending lots of time in my studio over Christmas break but there were too many things going on. So finally ...a gift came my way...a snow day.
I really needed that creative time, since I hadn't done anything since Thanksgiving!
There are two more pots waiting in my studio for some sort of animal.
I'll be able to finish them up this weekend and post.
