Here is the first two chess pieces..one will be a pawn and the other the King. They will get additional features when dry and I can use some grinding type tools upon them. They have saw dust mixed in which is a pottery technique with some tribe in Africa and will be fired in a fly khiln using cow manure as fuel cause you can generate high heat with such fuel.
Lord Rosse and his fifty inch telescope..he used cow manure to melt the metal for his mirror.

Thank you...If only my brain were fired up I would be happy...I have not had an invention or hint thereof for ages.
It is refreshing however to indulge this carefree medium.
I knocked out a couple more which I am most happy with.
At breakfast this morning I heard a lady next to me talking art..she was showing her work to others ..so I asked her to critique my work..she agreed and told me that my work as something else..and said that thing I wanted to hear in a medium that is overpopulated..she said my work was unique..in a good and sincere way..I don't think I am having myself on but she seemed impressed and admiring of my work....and the great news is she has a husband so I feel we can become friends..it is so hard to meet ladies these days who are married..them being married is great news as you don't have to fend them off...but I feel I have made a wonderful new friend.
She gave me her card and asked me to call.
Thanks again.
alex

I like the chess pieces. Your king has a noble bearing.

Thank you Stephen..he looks much better as I gave him a touch up. It funny how the characters just "appear" as if they were waiting in the clay to materialise.
