I'm back in the ceramics studio and working on a new mask. This one is of a fennec fox - my animal obsession of 2009. Last year it was the Iberian lynx and my first ceramics project [click to view post]was born. [ed. note: the mask now has a full set of whiskers and Abe is no longer disturbed by them - he actually sets aside the whiskers he finds while sweeping. It's very sweet.]
My fennec fox is moving along now that I'm a more experienced hand-builder. I think I finally have the ears done and can move onto the eyes and mouth. Looking at the photos it doesn't seem too elaborate, but those ears were difficult!
