New Work for February Show

Getting ready for a Featured Artist show involves a number of steps, -try to create something new-make it- dry it -bisque fire at cone 06 - glaze it-  glaze fire at  cone 6 and clean up any rough edges.
      I especially like the 12 inch  ladies,thought they could be inside or out.  The twisted tube pieces with birds are always a challenge in the glaze firing, just hope the birds will say put and  not take flight into a piece they were never meant for. The small 8 tiles puzzle, like so many things with clay,suggested itself with the left over clay from the other tiles.

The white sea gulls make her a tall sculpture
These are just 4 inches, I'd like the idea to make larger plates..


Should we go outside or stay in ?
We might like to stand on a stick in the garden

Your work is so expressive and well-executed, and your blog is a joy to visit! Your work almost makes me want to go back to sculpting.
