I have several methods for making faces. These fish were thrown on the potter's wheel. Actually, they start out as little jars that get a make over. This school was done a couple of years ago. More recent work is waiting to be fired. The kiln vent I installed looks very neat and tidy. It doesn't seem to be venting, however, so we might have a wait before you see some 2013 fish and sundry faces from the clay.
