My elephants are made using stoneware clays and I use a variety of tools and materials to get the skin textures and features that I want. After the first biscuit firing I apply oxides and stains to colour the surface. Recently I have been experimenting with smoke firing rather than oxides to emulate the effects of mud and dust on elephant hide
