Nymphs and Satyrs

Ahh Spring has sprung ! The woods are full of Nymphs ( at least one anyway , me) and Satyrs. These 2 tiles are approximately 15inches by 15 inches. They are created in a white clay . I sketch out my design on paper then sketch it into the clay with a needle tool being careful not to go to deep into the clay . I then go in from the back of the tile and push out in the places I want dimensions until I get the effect I want. These tiles have been painted with underglaze watercolors then fired and a clear glaze added and refired again. This is the first time I have used the watercolors. I think I like the watercolors. I also like the fantasy !
