He has had all of the drought that he can take. He's cracked, parched and looking for a way to turn on the faucet. I made him in 2009. After bisquing I sat him on the top shelf in my patio/kiln room to await glazing. Wren's built a nest in him and have used him to raise several broods ever since. They finally decided to build elsewhere this summer so I could have him back and finally raku fire him. He is signed and dated 2009 but was just finished today.
