It’s that time of year again when we dust off the festive ornaments and bring them back out to shine. A few years ago I made a robin and he comes back out every Christmas, in fact he never really goes away but is relocated to somewhere less prime. I like to rotate my pieces for display and I have enough of them now! Here’s my faithful robin.
|This lil guy is a few years old now and one of my very first pieces. I still love him.|
This year I made a series of robins for the Christmas tree. All but one have been sent as gifts but this one is my daughter’s robin and he hangs on our tree.

I had fun making these but did learn a valuable lesson about glaze interactions. The breast was meant to be red but it reacted with the brown to give a golden colour. I actually quite like it even if it was an accident. The main thing is that my daughter loves him.
