Today I created this little monster. I wanted to experiment with just focusing on one feature to see what effect this would achieve. I feel that this has created something alien and unfamiliar, and something sinister which has a suggested sexual quality about it. To me, it almost appears like a parasite on the tree or some kind of malignant growth. I don’t feel so warmly towards this one as I do the others, but I think that I have created quite an interesting effect and one I may explore further at a later date. I am really pleased with the aesthetic result and am excited to start the glazing, (its going to be cloudy but shiny, greeney, bluey, yellow!) . This piece has also been hollowed out on the inside and is ready to fire.
