Bird With Long Neck

This Bird is an American Bittern, same family as the Heron, the piece is hollow inside and build with a coil technique. The challenge is to keep going up without having the piece collapse and, I made sure to measure the piece so that it fits in my kiln, the tip of the bird's beak came very close to the top, what a relief!

I sold the bird the day I showed it, so I didn't get to spend much time with it, at least I have a few pictures.
