Dragon of the East

In the interests of not focusing too much on any one thing, I made a dragon in stoneware.  She’s small – about 2″ tall.  For whatever reason I usually find myself working small.

Right after I took these photos I was fooling around with her and broke her tongue off.  Of course I know better than to handle greenware too much, but that doesn’t mean I follow the right course!  I decided not to reattach the tongue because I figured it might be equally fragile after firing and then I wouldn’t be able to clean up the break.  So I smoothed out a hole in her mouth and maybe once she’s fired I’ll glue a pearl or other stone in her mouth.
