My Alligator Shaman needs Children

I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the kiln after glaze firing this guy.  I liked the sculpting, and I also liked the glazing - and that doesn't always happen!

This one was really fun to make and I was pleased to come up with something different for his shamanic cloak, namely the several insets of leaves on the front.  Don't you just love the shape of the line between the jaws on alligators and crocodiles?  The wavy line gives a perplexed/amused look and of course the teeth add character too.

I think he needs a few children, or shamanic students, so I'll make a few the next time I have the clay out.
