Elephant was thrown in two parts from white stoneware--his body and face/trunk. Slab ears were added, tusks and toenails. Also applied is a medallion with a stamped elephant head and the words "well done" on the bottom. Glaze on elephant has a visual lushness (to the eye) that is very mat to the touch.
