This guy is about 18 inches tall and just as wide, made of white stoneware spray-glazed with Nelson's Celedon, with a little "clear" Celedon sprayed over that.
It's the first piece I'm ever showing in an exhibit, of student works at Greenwich House Pottery - opening May 20. It's for sale, but I priced it not to sell unless someone thinks I'll ever become well known as a ceramicist (or, as I said to my friend Jason, "ceramicister").

The guy on the left is an amazing artist at Greenwich House whom I try to sit next to when I can, because he offers up incredibly useful advice, particularly on construction technique, whenever I need it (whether I know I need it or not) and helps move & lift things when two hands aren't enough. His name is Yair (pronounced yah-EAR) and I'm very grateful for his continued help! I'll post some images of his incredible sculpture sometime soon.
Here's a couple more shots later on, after the last (top) layer was placed:
Here is the piece turned upside down, trying to be a war-ship; and (spoiler alert!!) the final product...
