Hill of the Dragons

I finally found the time to take pictures of one my latest pieces from pottery class. You might recognise it since I have been posting in progress pictures and already showed this on Instagram.


It's a piece is just for decoration. We were supposed to create some kind of landscape on a round base plate. No, it’s NOT a church! As some you might have seen on Instagram - it's (loosely) inspired by the city of Whiterun in Skyrim. And when I say loosely I mean that the basic shape is based on the city but some finer details I just couldn't replicate in clay. It's actually red clay by the way but I used engobes that tend to be very opaque. For the water in the river and the well I used tiny glass pieces that melt in the oven but stay transparent just like water. 

It's one of the last pieces I made last year. Since now I'm starting another internship I wont have pottery class for a while. Also my teacher for this class quit and in summer we will get a new teacher. I hope they will be as great as the old teacher since I really enjoy this class.
