Ah, what a lovely piece of art. I thoroughly enjoy the roughness of this and the way you seem to have captured the essence of both disgruntled raptors and disgruntled felines everywhere - unless that is a sly smirk at the corner of its beak there. The body language is… engaging in a way one rarely sees in animal sculpture, it seems very alive.

I am very glad to have re-discovered your gallery. I remember you from my Elfwood days, and from having seen some of the Windstones in a ouple of shops here in Norway, but I like seeing your comments, sketches and “non-official” figurines.

Unfortunately, I don't make ceramic sculpture any more. All of my stuff is now reproduced in gypsum.
I did sell this piece, but I don't remember what it went for!

the claws went up cause the clay shrinked?

Isn't that interesting? Thin parts against the kiln shelves often warp UP in the final high-firing. I don't know why. It is a useful phenomenon though, keeps the more fragile claws up off the table.

Wow, your skill back then were already amazing! Great piece, I like the rawness and imperfections of sculpting, it gives some character to him :)

It is better for your mental health to let ceramic clay do its own thing and not try to control every detail.Thank you!

Haha! I believe that rule could apply in many other fields of art too ;) Sometimes those random little things make the work feel even more unique :) Just need to learn to accept it and take benefits from it ^^

My first thought: IS THIS CHOCOLATE?! :D
Wonderful, though. I love the grin of the griffin!
