about 220 pieces of ceramic bones, some thick steel wire for the wings/support - and some really strange fabric.
about 60 cm high (ground to topmost wing tip)
the "branch" it sits on is ceramic as well.

This was a school project I made when I was 18, took me 96 hours to finish.
It has its little shrine in my bookshelf.

You made all the clay pieces, fired them, then reassembled this post firing, right?

I'm sad to say I don't really have any process pics, I didn't have a camera of my own at that time so I only borrowed one for the finished piece :/
