I am energetic and like to run around wherever I have the chance and I sometimes feel I would like to fly. This bird with no wings represents that feeling. I sculpted the bird by hand out of terracotta clay at my weekly Saturday morning pottery class, and hollowed it out so it wouldn’t explode in the kiln. I glazed it with orange and yellow colour glazes, then dipped it in clear glaze before firing. I wanted to choose natural colours.
