A Squirrel Emerges from the Lump of Clay

It’s been quite a while since I’ve worked with clay, but I finally got back to it today and it felt good.  Even so, this squirrel has been a toughie so far!  She needs more work on her face.  I think the muzzle doesn’t look quite right yet.

I sure hope the tail stays on until I can get it bisque fired.  It’s relatively heavy and the union with the body is a fairly small area.  I have it propped up for now, but eventually I’ll have to remove the prop and get it into the kiln.  Well, I guess I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it.

Meanwhile I’m looking forward to working on her more tomorrow.
