Panda love

If you google images of tare panda you will see what inspired this latest creation. I am yet to decide if I have the energy to make a whole bunch of them (according to one website, the collective noun is "sleuth") and stack them up. For those who don't feel like googling, the pandas are a Japanese creation and are often seen forming a tower. Tare panda means lazy panda, hence the flat appearance of my clay creation.
Believe it or not, this small fish started out as the head of an evil bunny...

Animal characters

Very excited for these to come out of the kiln. The emu is inspired by Peter Browne paintings. The chameleon is because they fascinate me. And the sheep is because I love the sheep with the black faces. (quick google...Suffolk?)

Very happy with the results.
