The First Mermaids

The first two of my five mermaids have made it through the glaze process. One mermaid, my largest, blew off a breast during her biscuit firing which led to much mirth in our studio. . .with Jean Ann's "mermaid mastectomy". More on her later. Meanwhile I have a couple pictures of the girls who made it through. The smallest mermaid--Kelpie was my first. She is almost too stern but I love the little fin that is part of her spine.

My second mermaid was made to sit on the side of a shelf. Her name is Perch and she is to go to Don and Debbie Rumford of Rumford Productions.
