finally, here's the last piece with slip inlay that I did for the holidays. I made this one especially for randy, because I based it off a photo she had taken in great falls, virginia, of all things – a vulture:
obviously, I could only approximate the trees below the bird, so I did my best to hand-carve the bird, then took artistic license with the branches. I was pretty pleased with how it turned out.
I didn't measure this piece, but I'm guessing it was about 6 inches tall or so. it has shiny turquoise glaze on the inside to suggest sky and clear glaze on the outside.
