Chooky - Black and White
I am largely self-taught and have been sculpting for 25 years. I have several styles.
I make small delicate porcelain figurines, which are painted, glazed and sometimes gilded or lustred. These are mostly birds, cats, chooks, dogs, mermaids, ocarinas or water warblers, fancy women or clowns, cooks, waiters and sailors. I enjoy funny or quirky. My heroes are Don Martin and Gary Larsen of course. Handmade means anything goes, from a sheep panning for gold to King Lear.
