wing matters continued...

9 weeks to craft fair. I am still working things out. The above image is Yunomi (Japanese tea cup) of HANETSUBO series that came out of the kiln earlier this month. As I mentioned in this post, wings had to be ‘tweaked’ to make them stronger than the original version, but I felt like a kind of lost the look I wanted. Maybe too heavy or too much in a way of your hand? Much preferred the original version that looked lighter. As I was pondering and muttering, I saw this small jug that I randomly made as one off piece. Mmmm, quite like the way a single wing attached. So tried new versions in this way. Hope it’s going to work this time.  
Fingers crossed. xm
