Who watches Vikings? Did you think Ragnar was going to come back from the dead? Maybe he still will, who knows. Anyways, this old viking here is soon to be on a voyage to a new home. I made two in this series, one was sold about 3 years back but I held on to this one. It's now time to say goodbye though.
I made a couple more smaller bearcats last night and then moved on to painting the bigger ones that came out of the kiln today. Another firing and then an oxide. Finished product coming soon!
I use a lot of Feeneys Buff Raku Trachyte (BRT) for the construction of my clay sculptures. It's a strong, durable clay that I generally use for slab building but also enjoy using it for hand building techniques.
It's a coarse clay which when fired turns a sand colour with dark speckles.
