Default Foxy!

I've been concentrating on creating animal canes a lot lately. I never had a big stock of focal points for my blanks/pens and trying hard to change that. Here is my most recent clay cane, Foxy.
This lil guy took approximately 5 lb's of clay and was made over 4 days. Reduction was for sure a long process and I am thankful it reduced well.

Here he is all finished in raw form and used on a couple of blanks.
Thanks for looking.

Thanks so much Dusty. The reduction process is where you take the large constructed cane down to a usable size.
Here is a short video I made of a reduction of a smaller cane. Reduction Vid
Hope this helps.
