This is one of the school projects that has kept me from doing regular art for a while. The assignment was to make a teapot that was based on a preexisting object. Lucky for my my roommate had a Brachiosaurus model she was willing to let me borrow. And thus Rupert was born! (But I keep changing his name. I'm waiting for one to stick.)
He is almost completely hollow. The only part that isn't is the last half or so of his tail. I'm trying to think of the best way to glaze him so as to emphasize all his wrinkly glory. Right now I'm leaning towards using terra sigillata followed by black glaze once he's out of the bisque. Well see! I'll probably make some test tiles just to be sure.
