This one is from a pot that sadly did not make it through the firing, which was very sad because I was really happy with the way it looked carved. I threw a lidded casserole dish, and these little newborn bulldog puppies were on the side, along with some surgical tools. The mother bulldog was on the lid, all laid out for her c-section. The lid split in half during the firing, and I still have all the pieces, so maybe I will post a picture of it at some point. Very disappointing. But the little puppies are still cute!
These guys were from a set of plates I did that turned out rather nicely. These were actually pen sketches; I am always shocked and how well most of my pen sketches turn out :) Baby rhinos are very odd looking.
This page is from earlier than the other two, before I started to carve on the surfaces. I was thinking about working with altered forms, and I was really interested in somehow incorporating plants in with the pots, and also dirt. I am still intrigued by this idea, and now that I have more technical skill I may pursue it further.
