This is a model done prior to making a full size pig planter. He was made using what my instructor calls the "hollow potato" method... basically pinch pot until you can close it up. He was then rolled on the table to set the overall shape using the trapped air inside the potato to push against. He's very heavy for his size since the walls are at least 1/2" thick. Next time they'll be thinner before I close up the shape. I dabbed black glaze in his eyes and nostrils to highlight but it ran ever so slightly on the white. Very happy with him.
