First choice to hollow out the inside would be to cut open the bottom and try to work up into the interior from there, just not sure if I can reach all the way into the neck area easily.
2nd choice would be to pick a spot halfway between the back of the head and the tail and using a wire slice through the piece, this would leave the front more detailed areas intact and give nice access to all the parts that need to be hollowed out thinner. The only problem with this manner is I have to figure out how to join the 2 pieces back together seamlessly.
So which is my best option or is there another way to do this? Oh and I used little loafers clay which I plan to use underglazes to decorate and then bisque fire to 04 and then clear glaze applied and a final glaze firing to cone 6. I have attached a couple photos so you can see the shape and style of the figure in case that will help.
Again thank you for your time and input.
