bringin' home the bacon...

i have been busy making pigs for the last two days... threw most of the bodies yesterday and today some of them were ready to be assembled.  i extrude some small cylinders and use them as blanks for the legs and ears.  typically i attach a die to my pugmill, but since that is not set up yet, i have been using my little kemper hand extruder.

these are the pigs that were completed today...

and here is a shot of their porky little behinds...

aside from the pigs, i prepped some dried pots to get bisqued tomorrow... platters, spoon jars and a couple of vases.  jeff has some orders for christmas so we will be glaze firing this weekend.  the christmas rush is almost over!


  1. wee, wee, wee all the way home, they are so cute. who doens't love a piggy bank.

    I once used an air extruder, or maybe it was hydraulic at a private studio I was taking classes at, anyway it was a dream.

  2. I can't believe they allowed you to show their porky little behinds. :-)
