I didn’t think the previous rabbit through, so that one has literally gone back to the drawing board! Instead I have ‘recycled’ the one I started in to a single head, which lead to a few ideas which I am going to work out in my sketchbook.
I also made a candle holder
And working on this guy
The progress of the large rabbit (well, large for me) is going quite well. Mostly done, just needs tidying up then drying out before firing. I have had to work to the constraints of our kiln! The rabbit measures about 14 inches across, I would like to have made a bigger one but I’m pushing it already with the size of this one.
OK so it’s not perfect at all!! But it’s my first one and I think it’s pretty good.
We have been busy making up for lost time!! Lots of things have been and are being made, hoping to do our very first firing this week too, which means glazing will follow!
I decided to make a stop motion film of me making one of my rabbits, but made a few rookie mistakes – first one was filling up my DSLR SD card and not taking my laptop to empty the card, so I couldn’t take any more photos, and the second was that my camera battery ran out half way through anyway.
Tomorrow I will be taking my laptop and charger in!
But here’s a peek of what I’ve done so far!
Here are some progress pics of my two headed rabbit!! I am going to make a few more two headed ones in different forms/positions. This one is definitely a learning curve and a labour of love!!!!!! It is going well, now, but for the last few days I seriously wondered if I would ever enjoy making it! He’s kind of cute in a strangely unsettling way :)
*** Sorry the photos aren’t amazing quality, the studio is still waiting for electricity (yeah i know it’s been ages) and the it was hella dark. I didn’t want to use flash or up the ISO because grain.Two headed Rabbit Here are some progress pics of my two headed rabbit!!

Working on my artist statement today! I was thinking about it yesterday – an update is looooooooong overdue. I have been meaning to update it since graduating back in 2013. So after a few hours work yesterday (turns out artists work bank holidays haha) I had a few ideas, which then kept me up until gone 2 this morning thinking about it.
So I need to think about what I’m going to write, but some…
