Yep, same piece. I realized a month or so after that image was taken that this piece was not finished - every time I looked at it, I thought, it's missing elements, protrusions, wings, ears, horns, whatever it might be, to balance it and animate it. So I added two curved horns, attached (>>gasp<<) with epoxy. These are just underglazed blue with a clear final high-fire glaze on top.
The post-firing/attach-by-epoxy step was sort of a milestone for me. I have never considered doing something like that before, because of a combination of lack of confidence and a weird sort of amateur-puritanism about making ceramic sculpture, based on a self-imposed ethos which requires the piece to be finished _in_ the kiln, never _after_. The lack of confidence part is about not trusting my un-mediated artistry - meaning, as long as the final rendering takes place in a process which I have no control over (firing), then the art is sufficiently detached from my own hand so as to accept that the piece stands on its own. The result of those two feelings is that, even now, as the blue-horned piece sits next to the Spiral Step piece on my counter:
