Pottery Workshop Sculptures

Just went to another fabulous workshop at the pottery club this weekend. Handbuilding animals with Fiona Tunnicliffe. It was such a pleasure (though a bit daunting) to watch an experienced potter working on pieces when they are in the zone!

Day One was inspired by my Baxter Baby, i thought it was time he had another dog to keep him company, so this was the perfect chance, and with a lot of help he even looks like a Beagle! Then again i might be biased 🙂

Day Two we were lucky enough to have the company of the most georgous chihuahua, very handy indeed when a few of us were sculpting dogs, to have a live model. Attached the head and beautiful floppy beagle ears and then got inspired to make a pig to keep Baxter and the chooks company, but i am reserving judgement on my effort there.

Watermarks? What do you think?

Why, you may be wondering?

I stumbled across a website the other day that was selling my pottery blog photos as posters OMG, needless to say it freaked me out so I put a copyright banner on the side and playing around with some new ideas.

The chook was a DIY one that looks a bit naff so maybe the second one. What do you think about them? Do they help? What do you do?
