here's mine. now in order to make this, mom and I drew several versions on paper to figure out what would actually look like a sheep head. then I had to figure out how to build it in 3-D, so I started with a bristol board template, some tape and went from there. I think it took me a whole day. which makes me think I should have charged more for these, though they do tend to crack on the back, so maybe not. (if it sounds like I am speaking in multiples, it's because I am, and by the end of the show, had commissions to make 2 more!)
hand built stoneware with palladium glaze, which was a gamble; i had never used it before. its got a cool metallic sheen to it. the whole piece is about 14-16 inches high. not small!
