This is the first of the two ram horn handles attached to the hydria project. From the original sketch, the ram's head and horns were to scale as an attachment for the hydra...now, it is starting to feel a little more like a ram's head with a hydra attached. All to say, sometimes you just roll with it and see how things turn out. Some minor alteration of the belly of this pot has been done (i.e. the round form has been elongated slightly)...I'll sleep on this change before making additional alterations.
The forming of the ridges on the horn does take a bit of time...probably an hour and a half, plus 2 cups of coffee .
