Today, I stopped by the Sunin Clay Studio to pick up the Wacky Bird Dish that I made in class. It was a surprise to find it on the display window. The process for making this silly bird was a bit tricky. Luckily, Lynne, the instructor, was very patient. She offered great tips on how to safeguard the pieces from falling off. I was concerned about the tail and head being too heavy for the legs. The head was formed by making a pinch pot, so it is not solid. A tricky step was trying to get the beak and feet to balance…but it worked out.
Wacky Bird will keep me company as it sits on my work table. It is the perfect dish for holding my quilting clips
