Yay, I'm posting something!
I'd forgotten how much I enjoy doing ceramics, and always like experimenting with different subjects and techniques.
Raku is by far my favorite style, and I really love what it did to this sculpture. The charcoal-colored skin of the Egyptian Jackal god is a result of lots of smoke and flame introduced to the cooling sculpture, and though it might be hard to see, it actually lightens up at the tips of the ears, making them almost white-tipped. Not exactly historically-correct, but I loved the effect.
Anubis approximately 14 inches tall, is made from Willamette white ceramic clay, white crackle raku glaze, red low-fire glaze, and various lustre glazes and a touch of acrylic glazing.
