May Day Fox

Here's one of my recent ceramic pieces - a fox decked out for May Day with her fascinator of flowers.  She's long and lean, as creatures often are in the springtime.

I sculpted her by hand from Laguna EM342 clay.  Before I bisque fired her, I poked a small hole in her head - ouch! - so I could add the wired flowers later.  As always, I struggle with the glazes and often find it difficult to find the colors that's "just right."  She's a little bright, but I think probably my best choice from what I have.

In any case, I think she's a sweetheart!
