Done in Ceramics class, made out of clay, fired (resulting in it being blown up), glued together, then painted with acrylic black and white paint.
It blew up in the kiln, so I had to hot glue a lot of pieces back together, resulting in a weird appearance in the chest area.
I decided to paint that area black to try and cover it up. I changed the story to a white, beautiful swan transforming into a black, evil swan (only to explain the lumpiness from the glue haha.)
I also attached the picture of the blown up, unpainted pieces to show a before/after contrast.
(My teacher was rushing the class through this project, so the neck isn't as smooth as I'd want it, along with the head being smaller than intended.)
