The roosters and hens came out terrific, it is amazing how many different interpretations were created from similar molds.  Congratulations on a job well done.  Thank you, Dolores, for taking the time to create our molds. 
Sorry for the dark pictures, I didn't have flash on my camera.
Thank you, Gail, for hosting our meeting.  The food was delicious and the hospitality was great. 
We will be having a swap next meeting, you will create an 11" x 14", 2D piece of art depicting what makes a perfect summer day.  Any medium.


Cindy's hen.  She included lighting inside of  her hen and created a wire nest.

Claudia's rendition.  Beautiful blues and greens.

Candie's rooster has several variations of greens and teals.

Elisa's rooster, it looks as if it is in motion.

Virginia cut into her hen and added beautiful violets and pinks.

Stephanie's hen was a hybrid of a hen and a baby.   She used the hen's head as a bonnet.  Love it!

Ana glazed her hen, then added glass mosaic.

Gail's hen was a rich, deep blue.

Milly's rooster is very colorful and regal looking.

Dolores also created a hybrid with her hen by combining a pig's head with her hen's body.  She then carved into the glaze prior to firing.  Beautiful.

I can't help but smile at Lourdes' rooster.  I love the sombrero.  She also added false eye lashes to her rooster.

I also created a hybrid by combining a doll's head on top of my hen's body.  The whole piece is covered with tissue paper.

mmmmm, the food was delicious!
