these are very nice! They appear to be small but the bird one has me second guessing size... how do they scale?

Clay and trees two of my favorite things !! Really like the mossy hills, how do you grow your own moss?

@Thank you for your comments.



@Hi Dave, thanks to your link on IBC, I found this ceramic art forum, :Dsrc="http://ceramicartsda...t/biggrin.gif">

@How do I grow moss on the little hill, in bonsai, we call this composition 'kokedama' (moss- jade ball). If you dont mind, please check this little link on my page, I I put a little note about growing moss. http://www.lotus-bon...a2012PAGE1.html

@ the size of the red cranes is 4.5cm, white fine Paris clay, black and red under velvet glazed, First firing at 500°C, cooling 48h, Second firing at 1210°C, cooling 48h. I make this size for 6.5cm mud bonsai-penjning figurines.


I join you the picture of my daily sculpture that I make for bonsai-penjing presentation. If you wish to know more about the signification and history of those little mudmen figures, please check this link, written last year http://ofbonsai.org/...-accent-figures
