Almost finished.

I have not been able to work on this piece as much as I would like recently, which means it is drier and harder for me to manage. Today I have now completed the surface detail and am working on the base.

Half done, using the kidney when I can to save too much injury.

I shape the base with the side of the bat as this seems to move the clay without it springing back.
