Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh......THAT surrealistic fish! Several years ago I did
the mixed breed drawings and then had the kids develop their mixed breed
into a ceramic sculpture. TImothy (the one you like) had drawn a Fish
with the head of a dog, I think. Or maybe it was a fish head with a
pinecone body....can't remember now. Anyway, after they drew their
mixed breed, I had them lay tracing paper on top of the mixed breed
animal and diagram in cross section, how they would build such a
creature out of clay, using pinch pots, coil, slab, and so on, where the
air vents would need to be, etc. After they diagramed it, they made it!
The glaze is either Duncan's Heirloom Silver or someobody's gunmetal,
maybe Amaco. I think it s the heirloom silver, though. Say, you live
in Dallas, why not just hop the next bus and come down and visit me
someday? I'm in Houston.
