Pig planter2


Those ears were almost the death of me. Since he was so thick (even after doing the "pumpkin seed scoop" to his insides after I cut the hole) he required long, slow drying. Our cubbies at the studio are along the walls of the handbuilding room with tables in the center. One day I was there and decided that he was sticking out too far and someone might bump him. So I rearranged the cubby so I could face him inwards and I bumped him and knocked his ears OFF! They were reattached with paper clay, vingear, spooze combo that I could probably never repeat those proportions again. It worked and they made it through glaze firing. However my brushwork on them is awful ... you can see every brush stroke. I'm thinking that they won't stick out too much from under the plant leaves so should be ok.
