|THE SACRIFICES WE MAKE FOR OUR ART?|
My-Mother-The-Dowager-Duchess has two nude figures I made and never fired. I coated them in a fiberglass resin, but I don't think it was intended to preserve them through the centuries. They're not awful, but they're nothing to write home about (so I guess it's good I don't need to do so), and they've been glued back together too many times to count; the Dowager Duchess will never throw them away. I tried my hand at Sculpy, which is a modeling compound that bakes in a kitchen oven. I made one figure I absolutely loved. He wasn't really of the proportions recommended for something you'd bake in a home oven. I baked him anyway. He got a little burned around the finger tips and toes but, still, I loved him. And then I gave him to a friend as a birthday gift.
