This is a finished version of a sketch!
A rattle, made of stoneware clay and cone ten glazes. I ground off quite a bit of the chipped tail, removing the entire second set of feathers/spirals. That cleaned up remarkably well. Then it sat a bit wrong on its support ring in the kiln and needed a bit more cleanup at the front at the bottom edge of the glaze, leaving a minor scar. All the mishaps considered, it turned out surprisingly well. I've another similar one in progress. The little black cylinder is also a rattle; they came out of the same firing and were photographed together. No other relationship.
