this guy...blew up. he is ceramic and there was an air bubble in torso and he FRIGGEN BLEW UP the torso was in teeny tiny pieces, the rest of him was broken but repairable 23 pieces people ...glued back together...then painted i managed to find every "important" piece except the hoof of his one finger the rest i managed to pick out of the remains, 2 fingers i found stuck in the metal heating coils on the side of the kiln to give you an idea of how blown up he was. its a fricken miracle the head was not broken aside from one ear. new body made of foam, by some miracle he still stands on his own 2 feet!!! so happy!!! (anyone hwo does ceramics knows doing anything freestandig is hard) and LOADS of detail went into his outfit!!!!! the little feathers came from my pet bantam chickens.
