This tan and white hamster was sculpted (without the use of molds) from white stoneware clay. Under glaze colors were added before the first firing. Before adding the gloss glaze for the second firing, I like to put a thin wash if black under glaze down into the details. This offers the tiny sculptures a little more deffinition and dimension.
This hamster is a little bigger than some of the others that I've made in the past. I hope you will enjoy this new size.
