My goal (or request rather) was to sculpt a dolphin themed candle holder. The result was even better than I had anticipated, thanks in most part to my brilliant ceramics instructor who did some magic during the glazing process to the inside of the shell to give it an effect of pooled, opalescent sea water. And, it adds a level surface to the interior of the shell as well, resulting in both beauty and function (or porpoise-ful design). Everything I've learned so far about working with clay and glazes is represented in this piece, and it is one of my favorite creations to date. Thanks always to the Ceramic Art Studio and Shop.
