The Chicken Battery

The chickens are glazed.When I do them next I think I added ceramic batteries.Here a design for more egg production;a chicken battery with only two chickens.The battery idea is fun,maybe it works also with cars.

After firing the rooster biscuit ,a dark underglaze wash gives accent to the textures.

In case of the horse I put also after glazing onglaze white.On those white areas I want to add later 'happy colors' like;red,yellow,green etc.

The above picture;some miniatures fishes in the greenware stage.The underglaze wash is also done in the greenware stage.
