Female bisque ware. With Tera Sig and an under-glaze.

The clear glazed pieces waiting for the final firing.

Here they are finished.

I was thinking about call these creature Ick-a-boos? It just seems fitting. The brighter one is the male. The tentacles around the males neck stretch and grab the female by her protective head plate when he chooses a mate. This markings are meant to attract a mate. The males are smaller the female. The female size is meant to help protect it's young.

This was inspired by the fact the my family has a inter taxidermy loans system. So I decided to make this creature, I've been asked "what is it?" and the only thing I can say about them is that they are things?
