Deer Antler Cup

This piece was very easy to make I started out with a flat circle for the base. An made a rectangle long enough to wrap around the circle base. I slipped an scored those two together an made an deer horn an mounted it as the handle. And I glazed the base of it green an glazed the deer horn dark brown. An this cup has a smooth texture to it.

Bird Whistle

This piece I made is a whistle. I built a sphere with a empty core an made a rectangular piece an mounted it on sphere. an from there I messed with it to get it to whistle. after I had got the whistle I built on to it I made a head an put it on there. then I made the back look like a tail or back end of a bird. when i got all of that on I cut out some wings made sure they were same an equal. For my paint I painted the body light blue an painted the beak, eyes, wings, an back end of it silver. to finish it off I sprayed some special glaze to make the texture more smooth
