Geri, Jen, and Bonnie thank you for the nice comments on the bike. I was having some trouble getting a good camera shot, it looks a little better in person.
I posted the April Challenge today a day early because I have the day off. I hope you find something to inspire you.

I just saw that you posted the April challenge. Can't wait to take a look!
Comments and critiques are welcome.
Nealy thank you. Your kind words mean so much.
I hope you find a pic that inspires in the April challenge.
Well as you know I have been having limited success making pots! I have decided they are not my thing after the last one which at least didn't stick thanks to aplastic between the mold and clay but a couple of the points fell off and the whole thing looked strange. my fellow art friends suggested it would make a nice hanging planter if painted in bright colours!! However, it did give me an idea so today I made a similour pot and plopped a dragon in it! Now the pot is an egg with a just hatched dragon!! I think I am better at critters! Hopefully everything will fire without trouble. If the teeth survive it will be a miracle. I may try and add claws to his paws but they tent to knock off easily too.
I couldn't get a really good photo of it but here is the idea. the bottom of the egg is still in the mold to let it dry a little slower.
Wow Jen your dragon is great. You seem to be having lots of fun with the clay.

Jen that ain't no pot. That's who knows what It woud make a good fountain. Can't wait to see the finished product if you can keep him together long enough.
Jen, your dragon is great. You have a wonderful imagination.
Jen ~ I like your sense of fantasy! It reminds me that I have a dragon pet in SecondLife, my other life, lol. I may log on & see if I can take a pic of my dragon.
Karen, Geri, Bonnie and Nealey, thanks for the good words on my crazy dragon. Yes keeping him together through two firings and glazing will be the trick! Still I had fun. I did have a Picture to go by too, not that it did more than start me off. I was looking for dragon pictures as I was thinking of making one and I saw this drawing of a baby dragon in his shell. As the shell looked like my weird pot it went from there! I was looking at that bunny in Karen's challenge and wondering if I had enough clay left to do him. Will see!
The March Gallery is up. thanks to everyone who participated!
Jen the gallery looks great. Thanks for your hard work.
