Believe-it-or-not, this piece started on the wheel as a thrown cylinder.  It was then manipulated and carved to form the main trunk of the bamboo vase.  The bird was then sculpted seperately before being attached and then details were added. The whole piece was then painted in three seperate stages: first, before the first (bisque) firing. Second, after bisque firing, before the high fire.  Third stage, enamel and acrylic highlights and touch-ups are applied.
