Getting My Hands Dirty - Part 2

We finally produced enough items in pottery class to fill the kiln and do a firing. I was pleased to find that my odd little fungal inspired piece survived in one piece, none of us were sure it would survive, especially as all the pieces had to be transported to the kiln via snowmobile on rapidly deteriorating snow.

Last night, I glazed it:

The kiln will, with luck, transform the colors from pallid pastels to vibrant orange and red, to mimic the fungal forms that sprout in the woods each fall.

I had a bit of extra time and was basically doodling with clay, here's the result:

A pile of worms, a crazy bird nest....

I'm just not sure!
