Creature Comforts

A few new designs for the extruded dishes, included this lemur. Still lovely in wet freshly trailed slip.
At last the dog seat is finished, and a long steady slow drying out is ahead. I tried to lighten the seat, both visually, ( it did feel as though the dogs were carrying a heavy burden), and physically, by cutting away the decorative triangles along the edge. At the moment they do seem a bit dominating, but I think that the balance will change when the rest of the clay is fired black. They should also help the top to dry more easily and evenly.

I am still trying to think of a good name for it. I thought of 'Creature Comforts' but that would be stealing from Nick Park.
