a new chameleonrecruit

I am currently working on six new chameleonrecruits from the sirens saints and sinners series hopefully to get exhibited as a one group.  Here is the first of the new recruits – slightly different process in that a decorative slip was applied at quite a wet stage of the building process and where it is quite thick it has started to peel and flake – I couldn’t have asked for a better result.  This piece was coloured bisque fired, stained and then fired again.  The final finish is hot wax allowed to partially seal but add yet another layer of decay. size approx. 40 cm x 40 cm x 30 cm
