    Very nice Erich. It's amazing to see how thin the rear legs are along with the ears and base of the tail. Fine craftsmanship indeed. I hope you never have to mail this beauty! Thanks for showing.

    The craftsmanship in this piece is with several people.
    The sculptor of course.
    The formulation of the porcelean clay body and glaze is a science and art.
    Then the mold maker is truely an artist also. This piece would take at least a 10 piece mold. Tricky indeed.
    After that, removing the mold seams would be a delicate task in and of itself.
    Then the bisc firing of porcelean up to 1800 degrees fahrenheit. Porcelean cracks very easily during bisc fireing, it takes a master kilnsman to fire it bringing up the heat at desired intervals to cook out the chemical water. Then after bisc fireing, glazing and glaze firing up to a cone 11 or 12 about 2500 degrees fahrenheit. Also being done in intervals. The complete piece will shrink a total of 20% during all stages of firing.
    The high heat and inclusion of calcined bone ( bone fired to white ash and included in the clay ) gives the piece that ever so pleasing light translucence.
    A true piece of art crafted by several acomplished artists.
    Very nice piece sir.
    I can't quit being an old art teacher.

    Thanks for explaining the mechanics of porcelain manufacturing Steve. The detail in this piece along figures such as the HJ Drummer posted earlier are simply amazing and true works of art. With that being said, I'm now broke!
