Gorilla

Last year my husband and I attended an art fair at Olympia. We spotted the most amazing gorilla from a very talented sculptor Nichola Theakston. Ever since my husband had regularly wished he could have bought it.

With my new found skills in pottery I wondered if I could do something similar.

The above is Nichola’s limited edition piece. Absolutely stunning.

The gorilla was very slowly dried and bisque fired prior to Raku firing.

I think he might be a bit too cute. I’ve enjoyed making him so much I think I’ll do a gorilla bust. I love their faces.

He’s turned out well. I’m happy.

My husband loves him.
