Bearded lady

She's a bearded anglerfish, 8 inches long.

Bird bath

For the May garden show. Giving this one more try (the first birdbath cracked... the second was ugly)

Lace gourami

aka Pearl gourami: Trichogaster leeri. They're in the same family as last week's Blue gourami.

More fish plates

Sunfish. 9" diameter, brown stoneware with Coyote Shino and assorted Laguna glazes.

Butterflyfish. 9" diameter, white stoneware with Coyote Red-Gold and Gunmetal green glazes.
Love making these! I think I'll make a bearded anglerfish next... I need some representatives from the deep ocean.

Dwarf gourami cup and saucer

All finished... but it's a bit smaller than I would like. Still, it's a nice cup.

Trichogaster trichopterus

I thought their common name was Blue gourami, but there are gold and white varieties too. I once had three of these... loved them! So elegant.

Butterfly fish jar

Made with white stoneware, about 8 inches long and 7 inches tall. I'm not sure how I'll glaze it yet... it needs something bright and atmospheric and fabulous.

It kind of reminds me of a hedgehog.

I need to keep the piece damp until next weekend when I can get it to the pottery studio... This should do the trick! Hahaha.
