Work in Progress: Karen Shapley

Here you see the next stage in the kiln firing process of the creatures made by Karen Shapley. One of these figures will form the base of her Daphne's Glove piece. At this point breakages are still possible so 'breath is baited' until the work goes through a final firing to turn those orange tinted noses into a gorgeous gold.

"I am quite excited as I have tried a few new things on one or two of the creatures you can see here which have worked. They will add to Daphne's story so we shall see if she turns out ok in the next firing!"


  1. how wonderful!! I can hardly wait to see the finished project!

    1. We can't wait to see which ceramic chap gets chosen to be in the final piece either Susan.
