Lynx Attack!

I've been taking ceramics classes at Choplet on Grand Street in Williamsburg. My first project was a snail coin bank (no photos yet - it's being glaze fired right now) - that one was just a warm-up. My current project is a lynx mask wall decoration. I have a minor obsession with lynx. Iberian lynx to be exact. It's a pretty difficult project because I have a very specific image in my head. The eyes are really tricky - these photos were taken before I ripped out the left eye and moved it closer to the nose. I realized that it was starting to look a little like an alien. My goal is to make this perfect and then make a mold of it so I can make duplicates. Or should I say "duplicats". Wocka wocka wocka.
