Whimsey Wednesday: Holy Cow!

The height of my artistic life! I made a cow!

I replied to an Etsy Alchemy request for a kitchen towel holder that looks like a holstein cow. So, after much deliberation, planning and execution, here she is. My friend David named her "Bossy"

Clay is such a cool medium! I just love working in 3D. Maybe that's because I don't have a whole lot of depth perception. It's such a challenge. I love it!

This is great! So shiny too! Bet you had a lot of fun making it too! It also gives me ideas for other posts myself!

I just started working with clay too Judy after a lifetime as a painter. Of course I couldn't stop painting, so now I am just hand painting my ceramics. Luv your cow. if you see my work- you'll know why :0)
