Finally my Skull Salt Pig and ladle are finished. They're not in my hands yet as picture was taken by our tutor, my I'm so pleased.
Both had hand built using coiling and pinching. Buff stoneware with High Manganese glaze and Yellowstone Glaze. The skulls are unglazed and have a little chrome oxide mixed through them.

I'll post of pic of the back of the salt pig and the bowl part of the ladle when I pick them up.

I really like these, the color, shape, design, and that glaze! Been a long time since I've heard of a salt pig, my great granny used to have one. Great work!

Always looking for something to keep me busy.

I really love the colors, especially on the inside!  I hope you get a chance to take more pictures of the salt pig soon!  (I never knew that's what they were called, I call mine a salt cellar.)  I'm really curious to see more of it. Smiley

Nice work, I really like that sorta acid green colour in the inside. Its a really contrast to the black on the outside!
