Since I am not a production pottery, I must figure my niche. One of a kind sculptures or piece work is what I arrived at initially. They are wheel thrown in one piece and then at pre-leather hard stage the nest part is manipulated and carved. The egg is hollow but could be a hiding place for something special. These are 3 and 4 inches tall. At some point I would like to make a huge one. Everyone needs a nestegg these days...stoneware or otherwise.
