A little earthernware snowman - isn't he cute? Son 2 is planning to add some stick arms and give him as a Christmas present.
He now has a big brother too. Don't you love the way the clay (fired in our wood fire) comes out looking like brick or tile? Of course it is brick clay - we have an old tileworks just down the road.Son 2 was back out there at the weekend, making some secret Christmas presents. Ben popped out to show him how to roll clay - Ben did pottery classes at school.
The results of this session are drying out in our spare room. Once they're fired I'll try to take a few photos, although I'd better not show them until after Christmas Day!
