Being a goddess who provides protection over households I chose to express this feline deity in a domestic, earthy way. My experience in ceramics is very limited but I could not be more proud of this pitcher, especially since it pours beautifully!She stands regally at 9 inches, from ear-tip to toes and is glazed in rich browns and creamy white. You can't really tell here but her eyes are a light grass green. I constructed this by creating the slabs and other forms separately and then melding them together using slip (watered down clay). I carved in most of the detail after the shape had hardened enough to take the pressure. The rest was up to the mercy of the kiln gods and they were indeed merciful!
