Progress on mother courage is going reasonably well. I have finished ‘six babies’ which fit snugly into her wings – currently lined with plastic – to stop the new wet clay from seeping through into the dry clay (hopefully). I think most of the coconut fibre texture which is packed around the babies and their heads will burn out in firing. To replicate this I think I will be able to make a slip from ‘air-hardening clay’ and more coconut fibre and just top it up to finish off the piece. After firing I will probably finish with a mixture of ceramic stain and acrylic paint. Time will tell 🙂

You’re working really hard. You deserve success.
Thanks Tim – appreciate your encouragement – I do work hard but that as we all know is only part of the equation – lots of other factors go into the pot 🙂
