I am a potter, and enjoy making small clay characters, since I'm an instant gratification kinda gal.  Most of these little friends stand somewhere around 5-8 cm high.  They've all been underglazed, and then coated with a clear glaze.  If any of you folks are in and around Vancouver, BC, Canada, they are currently on display at the UBC Pottery Club Show and Sale at the UBC SUB Art Gallery (11 am - 5 pm daily until Friday).

The group:


Christmas Frog:


A little dog:


Face dude:


Monkey:


My favourites, the Hallowe'en Frogs:

Angel, Devil and Witch

Your dog looks like Grommit!!!!!!!    Grin

So cute!

I love the wide mouth frogs.  Have you heard the wide mouth frog joke?  Um, I can't remember how it goes, but if I do I'll write it for you (though it requires voices, so it might not come through in print).

Thanks everyone!

The scroll says "T'was the Night before Christmas" and it has a hole to hang as a tree ornament.  Not really a character, but it kinda goes with the Christmas frog.

These are so much fun to make!

Yup, they are all based off simple pinch pots (I use them to teach beginner handbuilding at the studio).  The frog is an upside down pinch pot (body) with a sideways pinch pot (mouth) on top, with two balls of clay on top of that (eyes), and then embellishments.
