Chirp, chirp, chirp

Hmmm. I thought I'd try this new format of posting photos, but it didn't quite work the way I thought it would. How does this qualify as

left? Oh well. Here are my stonepools, pretty much finished. Now they have to dry and all that jazz. Maybe within a month they will be done? I bet they'll take a month to dry actually, so probably longer. It was hard making birds at first, but I finally started to get the hang of it. I actually went to the pet store and stared at the birds for like fifteen minutes. That helped quite a bit actually. Well, the prodigal son returns today. I don't know if he's actually prodigal, I'd have to look it up to know if I used the word correctly, but it has a nice ring to it. He is coming back by bus and assuming he didn't sleep through his last transfer in NY, I should be meeting him in Concord today at 2:30. It will be nice to see him. It's been about six months he's been gone. Chow for now.

Oh Deborah, Wow, Wow, Wow ! Unbelievably beautiful and wonderful too. I just love them. What a tremendous amount of work to make all those.

How tall are the taller ones? Is that slip in the bottom of one? Are they going to be heavy to lift in the kiln? Can't wait to see them glazed.

That's great your son is coming home. Have a nice visit.

The birds really brought these to life.
Can't wait to see them finished.
Very sweet!

The stonepools are very cool. I like them a lot. The birds are a nice touch.

Enjoy your son's visit.

Very cool Deb! I especially like the one with the wood texture--wonderful shape!

Thanks everyone. The three taller ones are just barely 24" high. I am hoping I loose an inch in drying so they fit easily into the kiln. They are between 50-75 lbs I would estimate. But I should loose around 20% of that weight after drying hopefully.
