I’ve been calling it a wind clank as I thought the knocks would be duller, but they are actually quite light and chime-y.
Details: sculptural crank clay with slip texture (different on each body part) and texture imprint on the tail; eyes courtesy of a pen top; head was lightly burnished; all pieces deliberately a little uneven with shaped bases. Each section was glazed “upside down” so the visible bits were fully glazed; the flat front of the face is unglazed. Fired to stoneware for strength outdoors.
I need to sort the stringing out so they’re a bit more even.
Not my favourite piece – a quick bodge really, but useful for testing glaze colours on round surfaces and practising dipping bowl-ish shapes.
