Wait, I have one more!
We also did a couple of digeridoos-- this was a group effort, but the
results were dramatic and quite playable. These were made MUCH easier
with the help of the biggest fitting on an extruder, making a series of
tubes all about a foot and a half long and then decorating by
incising...the bisqued pieces were joined with acrylic paint (makes a
good glue for ceramics, all things considered) and were about 6 or
so feet tall. If you like, I can send pictures of the adult versions (we
rakued ours, but the idea is the same)...even if you don't play them,
they make great sculptural pieces for a corner...
Hope that helps!
