This first picture is the pre-fuse of the blank, right after I placed it in the kiln. The three Guardians are representations of Sequoias I saw in a photograph. I elected to add some fall colors to their leaves.
The next picture is after the initial fuse. There were some things I wasn't happy with, so I added more detail and fired up the kiln again. I'm waiting to see how this second fuse turned out and then I can proceed to the slumping process.
It is a beautiful day here in Colorado. There definitely is that hint of coolness in the air that signals fall's arrival. My morning started with a long bike ride with my husband and I have a good sense of tired right now. More work to be done, but that's always the case.
