A Sculpting Frenzy
One of my Etsy customers gave me the idea for the alligator. And I have to say that even though I don't feel a lot of kinship with alligators, this one was a kick to make. As I could have predicted, she came out cute. My ultimate plan for her is that she'll have a necklace of shells and teeth and perhaps a feather head dress.
The little bear just looks goofy, but she's very content wrapped in her cloak adorned with blackberries.
And, continuing on the animal shaman theme, I made a rabbit. I decorated her cloak by impressing it with violet leaves. The end result is a bit unrecognizable as such, but the impressions make a nice pattern. The clasp for the cloak is, of course, a violet.
I would say I'm making progress with ceramics because I now look forward to glazing my pieces whereas in the past glazing was a chore to be avoided. Can't wait to see how these come out!
