Candle Holder with Turtle and Friends

This pot started out as an experiment but turned out to be a pretty nice piece.

You can see in the latter part of THIS VIDEO that I used wax resist to mask out the areas around the Animal portraits.  I did this instead of scratching away all that slip like I normally do.

It worked pretty well. And I think I'll be trying more of the wax technique on other pots.

I've been putting that Turtle on pots for years but he's never been drawn on a pot.  Maybe I'll see if I can work up a Turtle drawing today at some point.

I listed this piece in my Online Store this morning.  Click HERE to go to the shop.

Thanks for checking in. I'll be posting some more new pots soon.
