Ceramic/Mixed Media Sculpture: Pangolin with Pyrite
I finally finished the ceramic sculpture I've been working on for over two months! He's made of calico stonewear, exploded in the kiln and had to be painstakingly repaired, was raku fired with a white crackle glaze, and finally embellished with individually applied pyrite crystals (smashing pyrite with a hammer is VERY fun). I have named him Steven. He initially came into this world as two pinch pots, and I'm proud of the young man he's become!

To see my other ceramic work, including sculptures, bowls and other stuff, have a look around my insta - work includes raccoon bust with moss, bunny with borax crystals, bear bust with gold leaf and lots more.

Thank you! When I was making him it felt like it would never end. I'm so glad it all paid off and he's so handsome now!

That is a fine dazzle-pangolin indeed!
