Wendy wrote: When I offered to donate to the Airedale Rescue Quilting Bee, I was advised the theme for 2016 is "Leap Year". So, what's better than a dancing, playful, leaping Airedale! 

This Aire Girl is 6 inches from tip to tail handmade by me in my MudPups studio, Queensland, Australia. She is made of stained (coloured) clay and as a special treat for the Bee, a small heart cavity was created in her chest and then filled with beautiful pure white porcelain.

Aire Girl was hand sculpted for many hours, allowed to dry for a couple of weeks, and then fired in my trusty kiln to 1832 degrees F which converts her from dry clay into a solid but still absorbent form called bisque.

Next, she was sanded and her eyes, nose and saddle were applied, then back into the kiln for final firing to 2084 degrees F. The result is what you see in the photos - a ceramic stoneware sculpture of an Airedale in playbow pose.

A final sanding, a protective coating applied and now she waits to discover who will give her a new home. She is happily playing with all the other ceramic furkids on the shelf.
