Here are a couple of things I finished last night and pulled out of the kiln this afternoon...

I used some scrap glass to create this fish skeleton...

And I also created some Ladybugs...

The fish is about 4"x4.5" and the Ladybugs are 3"x2.75".

Wow, I love both!  I cannot decide which makes me happier.

Thanks, every one.  I'm thinking of doing some more of both, although I'm happier with the fish idea.  I want to do it a bit different, like maybe a bit different colors or at least use a backbone that isn't so far off from the rest of it.  It was a piece of stringer I had sitting on my work bench and I didn't realize it would turn so orange when it fired. I would have used some black stringer if I'd had it, but the closest was a dark green. That still probably would have worked a bit better.

Thanks again.
