Nautical Animals

I started making boats about 6 months after moving to North Carolina. It was inevitable as my studio use to look out on the river. Even though i have moved I am still sailing and kayaking as much as possible.
The boats are made a little differently from the animals, I was having trouble making the hull. I have made forms to push the clay into to give me the basic shape of the hull, I then build the superstructures separately, much like a real boat is built. Then I add all the details, animals, etc. In addition to the usual underglaze decoration, many of this boats go through a third firing for lusters. (gold, copper and white gold)
