Decided to put all these little creatures into one post as it takes to long to post them separately and I cannot stand computer work. All the above pieces are pit fired ceramic with paint and/or wire. If you are interested in exhibiting these pieces please feel free to contact me, they are fairly inexpensive. Affordable Art!

I came across this little pile of feathers by our front gate the other day. Some little bird has been trying very very hard to make a nest out of my hens feathers. I found a clump earlier in the day and thought the worst then later found this little half formed nest. Poor little bird, its efforts kept getting blown away by the wind. But what a lovely silky bundle it is.

Some of the little harpies I have been working on fresh out of the pit this morning. Not a successful firing, I say there were some air bubbles and I say the weather was against me. The pieces should have still been hot when I opened the pit but with all the rain last night, the water got in and the ash was damp. A nuisance; anyway in my usual frugal fashion I just glued what needed to be glued and polished them up with beeswax. I like how the breaks and cracks make them look like ancient fertility relics, like the Venus de Willendorf. I will probably make more of these at some point. I would like to step back from sculpture and do more print and drawing again but that seems an impossible feat, climbing a mountain would be an easier task, and seems less overwhelming.
