Sassy Spirit is … what can I say? SASSY! A perky unique ceramic filly ready to challenge any comers. I use a very special nylon fiber infused ceramic clay which is very hard when fired. I first sculpt a thick inner hollow armature using four heavy steel legs and a wire for the head, neck and tail. When completely bone dry I sculpt the shape of the horse adding detail and textures. Each horse is a one-of-a-kind. When completely dry, I add any additions to make her exactly the way I want. I Kiln fire and keep the horses in the kiln for 24 hours to make sure the firing and cooling are perfect. After firing I sculpt finer details with Apoxie clay which dries very hard. I finish with top quality acrylic paints in blues, turquoises, and iridescent colors, and finished with layers of clear coat. Let Sassy give you a smile. Make her part of your family.
