Lost Starfish
by mikka

Prompt: Turtle and the Starfish
prompted by: Carol Moore, during Sketch Fest #90 (August 2017)

This is a finished version of a sketch!

Stoneware rattle, oxidation cone 10. The starfish seems to've migrated to the turtle's other shoulder during its ride. Perhaps it is not lost, but taking a turtle taxi to another beach? This is my favorite turtle shell pattern so far.


Afke says: That glaze makes the turtle all shiny, as if it just came out of the water. :) I like the contrast with the matte starfish! ~ Reply?

     mikka replied to this: Thank you! I'm pleased with the finish contrast, though I wish I'd used a little more glaze on the turtle (the photo doesn't show it well, but it's pale green), and a little less on the starfish, soas not to swamp the dots.

Kathy Nutt says: this is awesome! ~ Reply?

     mikka replied to this: Thank you! Must make more turtles, they're fun.
