The Third Totem - a Running Hare
Here's the third and final totem animal of the latest batch - a running hare. His ears as SO big, and his legs are SO long. He's carrying a beautiful assortment of semi-precious gemstone beads, tied onto his back with artificial sinew. The carnelians are beautiful flat faceted square. The turquoise are small nuggets from the Sleeping Beauty mine. And the amber is a large perfectly clear bead of a quintessential amber color.
This is another of my favorite glazes - "Sandstorm" by Duncan. It has a lovely mottle to ti, combining a medium dark brown, a caramel, and a beige. If I drank coffee, it might remind me of coffee with caramel and a light froth.
