Here is a rabbit/hare/bunny that I pinched out of a small cylinder of clay.
He was going to be a whistle but I let him get too dry. I like my whistles to be on the edge of hard leather when I make them.
There is a lot wrong with him, including the mended foot, but he will be fine for design experiments.
Many of my potter friends on various FB pottery groups have been making coiled cone Christmas trees.
I built these two over bisqued cones wrapped newspaper. My clay was very wet and I was too impatient to dry it out a bit. The smaller one is coils which I then smooshed to get some surface movement. The larger one is small wads of clay which I shaped as I applied them.
I remove the forms as soon as the clay has dried just a bit. The newspaper stays in to provide a bit of support. It removes easily when the trees are completely dry.
I have glazed these with three coats of Spectrum #799 Majolica White. The green in Mason Stain #6202 Florentine Green.
They will be single fired to ^05
As always, thanks for stopping by......*s*
