The "big fat pony" fired and glazed out of the kiln. On the photo arranged with my sons creations
C&C always welcome
Claudia, the pony looks great! You must also have an artistic son - I love the dinosaur/lizard that's peeking out!
Comments and critiques are welcomed and appreciated.
Hello Claudia! Great work on your "big fat pony"! I like how you glazed it too. It looks like you excavated it from a dig!
Comments and critiques are welcome.
Claudia, your "big fat pony" came out so well. It's hard to believe it was inspired from the carousel horse. Your son's work is so nice to see, love the snails and lizard.
Bonnie C & C most welcome / appreciated
Claudia your pony looks more lik a real pony than the ones on the merry go round.. I like it. Is that just black glaze that you put on it??
C and C always welcomed
Thank you Alex, Nealey, bonnie and Geri for your nice comments. Yes my first intention was to form the merry go round horse. But i guess I used to much paper for the filling so it turned out rather fat.
Thanks to your suggestions i thought i glaze it to make it look like a real pony. The teacher of the pottery place suggeted a mat black glaze with a coulple silver sprinkles to make it look like a statue.
The glaze was pretty thin and i should have put on an other coat , but now it lookes like Nealey suggested, right out of an excavation.
So not what I had in mind when I started but I'm happy with it
It has been awhile since I have done any glazing but if I remember right it takes about three coats. If you have enough glaze dipping it is the best way.
Claudia, your pony turned out really well. Glad it did not blow up in the kiln.
Jen C & C's always welcome
