Work in Progress – Ceramic Sculpture

As the temperatures soar in Texas, my ceramic work progress is picking up.  All the ceramic sculptures have gone through a bisque firing (1940 dgrees F).  The plan is to do multiple firings (4-5 kiln firings) with underglazes, oxide washes, glazes and some other finishing materials (casein paint, waxes and whatever else seems interesting).

The photos at this posting show the ceramic sculptures receiving a 2nd under glaze painting.  The goal is to achieve rich layers of color and texture.
