Owen and Nadia

The other days some folks came out to choose a present for a friend and their two kids each got a little sample of clay to play with. I was just amazed by the little pieces that they fashioned. Owen made this little dog and Nadia made the standing figure. I find both of the figures humorous and gesturally wonderful.

I'm not sure whether Owen meant for the dog to have his leg up, or if the piece just dried that way, but, as you can see, he is definitely a male.

The pieces got loaded into the bisque kiln this afternoon and they will be fired tonight. I found myself being much more careful with these pieces than with my own as I do want them to come out successfully.
