Seymour the Octopus

Clay:  Sculpture Mix
Black underglaze
Cone 6 Glazes:  Val's Purple, Translucent Blue Green, and Clear

Before and after, I love how Seymour turned out. Well maybe I love a piece in the leather hard stage the most, but alas after the final glazing and firing, he stuck to the catch plate and then the weight of him fell off the plate during display and an arm broke.  Oh well.  I can't sell him now, but he's my prototype.  I totally want to make more octopi.  And this time I will mount them on a plate for hanging displays.
