My ceramic Dragon on a Castle

This ceramic piece is handmade from the greenware stage to bisque to finally painting in acrylics. I've added some sparkle with very fine glitter, and also crystal beads...treasures the Dragon is guarding.

My latest ceramic piece: Castle on a Hill

This piece is approximately 10" high and is made of bisque ceramic using acrylics. I've also added a touch of very fine glitter, and three crystal beads to add sparkle and magic.

Ceramic Pueblo Scene Fridgie Magnet

Here is a small fridgie magnet with a southwestern pueblo scene on it. The colors are darker than in actuality.

 I'll post two photos, as the second is a bit blurry, but better color and detail.

A Tiny Ceramic Cow Skull

A tiny ceramic cow/steer skull - these can be made into fridgie magnets, or as part of a southwestern scene.

Ceramic Desert Tortoise

We've finished the ceramic Desert Tortoise. If you placed a quarter (coin) at his foot, it would be about the same size as his front foot. Done in acrylics and oils, with a matte seal finish.

This tortoise is modeled after the Sulcata Tortoise, native to more northern parts of Africa. 
Here in Arizona, our desert tortoises look very similar. 
Tortoises can live up to 100 years, and grow very large.
