The detailing is coming along (slowly, but coming along.). Below are photos of the “Front” and “Side” views of the bird. If you double-click on the photos it will bring up a closer view that will allow a better look at the detail on the bird. (Depending on your browser, the bird may be laying on it’s side.)
When you view the close-ups you will see that there is still a long ways to go.
Remember, the the overall plan is to end up with a sculpture of the driftwood (which has already been fired.) and a sculpture of the bird which is still pliable. The main reason for doing this is so I can position the feet on the bird without totally destroying the drift wood.
Once both are fired, there may still be a third firing which will join the two together.
