cat goddess fini!

I got the call yesterday. The pieces I took up to my teacher's studio on Saturday were out of the kiln! We had gone up and had a glazing party dipping and trying out all kinds of things.

The cat goddess of course has a mind of her own and did not entirely comply with my plans for her. She was supposed to be all white with an overcoat of aurora blue. To get the blue on her, I had to do two dippings. When the first one was dry, I went to dip her again but we had mistakenly opened the wrong glaze bucket. And unfired glazes do NOT look like what they end up as.

Nevertheless, she came out gorgeous - especially considering she is my first statue built like this. And as an added bonus, the little polar bear critter - which I glazed in black - came out awesome. More photos in my flickr set.
