Ceramic Sculptures II

The first two sculptures are made and have gone into the oven for baking. We are keeping our fingers crossed for them to emerge unbroken. Breakage is a major problem for any ceramic artist. It is heart breaking to see a piece emerge from the oven broken beyond repair....We have had quite a few such experiences in the past...Hope it doesn't happen this time.

In the meanwhile we have decided on the second sculpture also. We are planning to include some portions made on the wheel. This will give us an opportunity to test our pottery making skills after a long gap... I think pottery making is like cycling or swimming. Once you learn the technique, you will not forget it.
The basic figure sketches look like this:

The center will be wheel-made in the first picture, with flaps on both sides. Pushpa is planning to make the second picture which will be a fish on a wheel and she is planning to give some texures both on the wheel and the fish..
Will come back with more pics in the next post...
