Cat Shaman Again
It doesn't show so well in this picture, but when I formed the basic cone for the body, I got the idea of cutting a leaf shape from the bottom corner on the left. It turned out pretty cool, and when it's glazed I'll take a photo where that part shows better.
I'm taking more time and care on the construction of these pieces now. I used to leave the bottom open and you could look up inside and see where the head pokes in, etc. On this one, I added a piece to cover the bottom. That's where I put my signature stamp, instead of up inside, and it looks better and more polished. Of course I had to poke a hole in it so the air can escape when it's fired.
