A dragon to keep you company-or to save you when you jump into the river after a pink shoe...
On the first day of ceramics class, I said that I wanted to make a dragon. Mission accomplished.
Making Haku was insanely hard; I often thought to myself that this would be a fruitless effort, but then I may as well see this to the end. The long coil of his body just WOULDN'T stay still or up! And the legs *face palm* kept breaking off. The hair/fur was by far the only easy part; just scratch and slip it all on, and then use a needle tool to scratch up the individual hairs. The body's sinuous curves took so long to actually harden and become firm (or at least firm enough that I didn't compare it to eggshells), but once that was over, it was smooth sailing. Glazing was a blast, and once I saw Haku out of the kiln, I was absolutely relieved and thrilled.
