The Hunters (side one)by mikka
This is a finished version of a sketch!
Stoneware clay cup. The designs were penciled on to the bisque and then painted in wax, and glaze applied over that, with the wax providing a resist, so the hunters are bare clay against a glazed ground. I didn't have the sketches with me when I was glazing the cup, so they're more different from the original sketches than I'd intended. There's one figure on each side of the cup. Sadly, there's also a crack in the bottom -- a side effect of it being an older piece I held on to for too long. The crack is only on the outside and the cup is still watertight, but it's unaesthetic.
