An Edwardian Chipmunk

This little chipmunk (she’s 3 1/2″ tall) is, I think, my favorite of all the ceramic pieces I’ve made so far.  She’s demurely dressed in Edwardian costume.  She’s a quiet-mannered little girl, though she likes to get wild now and then.

I made and fired her hat separately because I wasn’t sure I wanted to use it, but, in the end I decided to and glued it on.  I used E6000 glue which worked well because it’s so good on glass, which is what the glaze is, essentially.  The feathers were generously contributed by my chickens.  I glued them into a tiny hole I had pierced in the hat before I fired it the first time – a rare example of planning ahead!
