Sculpture from play

I made this sculpture some time last year and have only just finished glaze-firing it. Another piece which resulted from simply playing around with clay, squeezing it into shape with both hands and seeing what might emerge. In this case, it took on quite a visceral form, so I added a bone-like structure to the outside, whilst keeping many of the marks and impressions made by my hands.

It was fired twice, first time with a black slip, then with an added brushed-on coat of manganese glaze to cone 5.

Sculpture, approx. 6 inches tall
