Bowana, Nice work man! Hope it make it out of the kiln okay.
Babalu, The piece is a mug for drinking out of. i am doing a series of mud masks from 3 different regions in PNG. The light cracks for these are good because the actual masks have cracks in them. My 1st one, though, i had bagged, then set out too close to the air conditioner, which dried the top opening of the mug, and caused uneven drying. Just put it in a bad spot, and jumped the gun by a day removing it from a loosely covered plastic bag. The front and back both have cracks that appear to go al the way through, so i am going to force dry it a bit faster now, and do a fill when the piece is drier.
I am using Aardvarks low fire, think its mcw 1. When I sculpt with water clay (for non fired things) i usually use Laguna em210 wed, and their em217 white when making walls for molds. My understanding is that duncan glazes work much better on aardvark clay. couple years back i was told their were glaze fit issues with duncan colors on laguna clay bodies. Have you had glaze fit issues with the laguna clays? I have not tried a clay with heavy grog yet, will play with that soon as well.
Looking forward to seeing your pieces after the bisque firing.
Thanks for the notes on your drying methods, have never flipped the bag. Sounds like a good idea to remove moisture off the bag.

Jeez, I only wished I could all sculpt the human figure this well! I guarantee you that the only other person on TC that could pull off sculpting a 5.5 inch tall human figure like this is Master Squid...that's it

It's BIG, man, its actually pretty heavy to carry around...

...and no, I have no idea which side is the front.

It's a mug, but it's like the size of a big wine bottle. You'll have to wait & see, it has some uses I haven't shown yet....
