Playing in mud...day 1

Today I began what will prove to be a life long love hate relationship with mud.
-First, I took over the garage...

-Next I began experimenting (mud and clay everywhere at this point mind you)

-Then I demolded my first horse...and not really knowing how to piece together 2 sides of a horse I smeared both sides with slip and mooshed them together...seemed effective enough...we will see once the greenware cleaning is done and we will really know if we have had a success or a failure based upon whether or not it explodes in the kiln =)
