Ale Amorin" added me as a contact and proceeded to peruse their flickr stream when I stumbled upon this beautiful piece.
The artist says that it's made out of "regular clay" and requires three to four days of sculpting & modeling, about a month to dry and then 16 hours to fire.
Absolutely awesome. I've invited this piece to the Skullnation flickr group and am looking forward to looking through the rest of the flickr stream.
Happy Friday and stay tasty!
