Finished - little bird skulls.

Firstly, I must just say that these skulls are purely my own design based on working with real bird skulls brought in as gifts from my cats! I don't want to sound mean in any way, but please don't copy or reproduce my images or ideas in any format, thank you :D

Right, that's out of the way so here is how they looked fresh from the kiln.
Coated with my special smoke glaze resist.
After the smoke firing and the resist has been removed.
Decorated and ready to sell in my Etsy shop Here.
How many of you have been watching the Pottery Throw Down on TV? It just goes to show how much time thought and energy goes into ceramic work. I wouldn't want to be under the amount of pressure that those poor contestants are under!!!  It's well worth a watch and has given me some inspiration for making larger items.  I'd love to make a sink ;)

Hello I just arrived blog hopping and I was delighted to see you have a lurcher like ours. I enjoyed having a look round, the skulls caught my eye, as I recently found a little snakes skull.
Anyway justt thought I'd say hello! Kath in Avalon
