This sculpture by JH Slick is a Cybis 'Nashua' Thoroughbred racehorse produced in porcelain.  A client of mine wanted me to replace the huge, clunky base it originally came with to which he was epoxied.   So I sculpted a new base and cast it to fit this particular commission.  Then I claybody customized the mane and tail by resculpting them and low fired them.  I then went onto reglazing the piece -  which already had a very flat matte bay finish that was rough textured and captured dust so that it was impossible for her to keep clean.   My client wanted this piece slick finished and have lighter highlight areas and dappling with more white markings than the original.  So I painstakingly refired this sculpture many times to first lighten up his base color, then to dapple and redarken using a combination of opaque enamels and translucent china paints.  Whew!  He measures a bit over 12 inches tall by 14 inches long and has a brass halter ring.  Overall his surface area is four times as much as my usual pieces.   Private collection.
