ceramic figurine

during the past 6 weeks i've been in a ceramics course. one of the options for our problems was to create some kind of ritual figurine. i combined this idea with a "swarm" (several objects as part of one whole piece) to create this little glazed earthenware doll.

i stung it together with elastic in a little different sort of bjd way.

the box has a voice box and button in the lid and the box contains about a dozen different faces that fit over the pegs on the head of the little figure.

it's lovely when it moves - it squeaks and scrapes and makes all sorts of great noises.

i hope to use this critter in a stop motion animation later in the summer.
