Finally finished the horse. The joins are a bit shoddy; because it was only a maquette, I didn’t take a lot of care with them. Regret that now, as it has become a piece in its own right. Will try to patch them once on the firebox.
Whilst making this piece, I’ve become clearer about the community hearth event – it’ll be called THE RIDE OF THE VALKYRIES, well actually no Valkyries, just their horses!!
Think a herd of them all fire bright and shooting flames out of nostril and eye would be a wonderful sight! Now I just have to convince a group of mad potters to come along for the journey.
